Stanford HIV DB, Rega Typing Tools, Genome Detective and other tools
KRISP has access to cutting-edge servers, including High Processing Clusters (HPCs) computers at CHPC and SAMRC and has dedicated Linux servers and multiple top of the range MacPro Desktops. KRISP has also installed 100s of bioinformatics software applications and pipelines with allows us to provide world class bioinformatics support and services to the academic and commercial community. For example, KRISP has a long term partnership with the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) and with the head of the IT of SAMRC, Mr. Patrick Charls. The SAMRC cluster allows interrupted access (24/7) to our online tools and databases, including the Rega Subtyping tools (de Oliveira et al. Bioinformatics 2005) and the South African mirror of the Stanford HIV Database (de Oliveira et al. Nature 2010).
Bioinformatics tools and databases development.
KRISP has been created by the coordinated effort of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) and the South African Medical Research Countil (SAMRC).
