Genome sequence of the tsetse fly (glossina morsitans): vector of African trypanosomiasis
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2014)
Tsetse flies are the sole vectors of human African trypanosomiasis throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Both sexes of adult tsetse feed exclusively on blood and contribute to disease transmission. Notable differences between ...
Whole-genome sequencing for an enhanced understanding of genetic variation among South Africans
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
The Southern African Human Genome Programme is a national initiative that aspires to unlock the unique genetic character of southern African populations for a better understanding of human genetic diversity. In this pilot ...
Chromosomal-level assembly of the Asian seabass genome using long sequence reads and multi-layered scaffolding
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
We report here the ~670 Mb genome assembly of the Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer), a tropical marine teleost. We used long-read sequencing augmented by transcriptomics, optical and genetic mapping along with shared ...
Capacity building for whole genome sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and bioinformatics in high TB burden countries
(Oxford University Press, 2020)
Background Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) is increasingly used for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) research. Countries with the highest tuberculosis (TB) burden face important challenges to integrate WGS into surveillance ...
