INTRODUCTION

BioAfrica presents the research, software and publications of Prof. Tulio de Oliveira and members of his research group.

Research group is based at Doris Duke Medical Research Institute (DDMRI) at the Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine, College of Health Sciences (CHS), University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa. Many of our researchers have fellowships and/or honorary positions at the Centre for the Aids Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA) and the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI), Durban, South Africa. Bioinformatics servers are kindly mantained by the South African Medical Research Council, Cape Town, South Africa.
