15 minutes: BioAfrica (and our work) at a glance

BioAfrica team has evolved to become the KwaZulu-Natal Research Innovation and Sequencing Platform (KRISP)

Here we provide you with a summary of the key aspects of our bioinformatics and drug resistance work in the form of news articles, blogs, tweets and publications.

In this new section of the bioafrica.net website, the idea is that anyone with 15 minutes to spare can learn about our work and its application in everyday life.
