The Computational Biology Division (CBIO) at UCT performs bioinformatics research, teaching and services. To date we have provided bioinformatics support but with limited availability of staff. However, we now have additional dedicated bioinformatics support staff based within the Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine (IDM) and the Clinical Infectious Diseases Research Initiative (CIDRI Africa Centre).
Tuberculosis can be detected in people with HIV infection via a unique blood signal before symptoms appear, according to the results of a new study.
CIDRI-Africa hosted a UK Science delegation at the Khayelitsha Site B clinical research site in December 2017.
Tuberculosis can be detected in people with HIV infection via a unique blood signal before symptoms appear, according to a new study. By providing new insights into how the body responds during the early stages of the disease, the findings could enable researchers to develop tests to predict and prevent the worsening of symptoms in the most vulnerable patients.
A seminar entitled ‘Birth & Future of Multiscale Modelling of Macromolecules’ was presented to the IDM by Prof Michael Levitt, Nobel prize winner 2013 and Prof, Structural Biology, at Stanford University School of Medicine.
