Immunogenicity of plant‐produced African horse sickness virus‐like particles: implications for a novel vaccine

Plant Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5787833
PMID: 28650085
DOI: 10.1111/pbi.12783

[…] The identities of the protein species observed on the Coomassie‐stained gel were independently determined by the Centre for Proteomic and Genomic Research (CPGR, Cape Town, South Africa). Gel pieces were washed and fragmented by in‐gel trypsin digestion as per the protocol described by Shevchenko et al. (). The peptide solution was analysed using a Dione […]

“Broadband” Bioinformatics Skills Transfer with the Knowledge Transfer Programme (KTP): Educational Model for Upliftment and Sustainable Development

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4652891
PMID: 26583922
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1004512

[…] nput from a few isolated senior scientists from Africa, many of whom are based abroad [, , –].This article describes the KTP, an initiative supported by the Centre for Proteomic and Genomic Research (CPGR) and the NIH-funded H3ABioNet project to strengthen bioinformatics capability-building at local institutions in Africa where life scientists are in need of skilled bioinformaticians. The KTP is a […]
