Genome sequences of three vaccine strains and two wild-type canine distemper virus strains from a recent disease outbreak in South Africa
(American Society for Microbiology, 2017)
Canine distemper virus causes global multihost infectious disease. This report details complete genome sequences of three vaccine and two new wild-type strains. The wild-type strains belong to the South African lineage, ...
Genetic variation and population structure of Botswana populations as identified with AmpFLSTR Identifiler short tandem repeat (STR) loci
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-07-28)
Population structure was investigated in 990 Botswana individuals according to ethno-linguistics, Bantu and Khoisan, and geography (the nine administrative districts) using the Identifiler autosomal microsatellite markers. ...
Inhibition of bacteria associated with wound infection by biocompatible green synthesized gold nanoparticles from South African plant extracts
Unlike conventional physical and chemical methods, the biogenic synthesis of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) is considered a green and non-toxic approach to produce biocompatible GNPs that can be utilized in various biomedical ...
Diversity of dsDNA viruses in a South African hot spring assessed by metagenomics and microscopy
The current view of virus diversity in terrestrial hot springs is limited to a few sampling sites. To expand our current understanding of hot spring viral community diversity, this study aimed to investigate the first ...
