The concept behind this newsletter is that anyone with 15 minutes to spare can learn about the work of the KwaZulu-Natal Research Innovation and Sequencing Platform (KRISP), which is hosted at University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), Durban, South Africa

KRISP wants to want to challenge the status quo and create a scientific environment in South Africa that drives innovations in global health and reverses the brain drain. A critical function of KRISP will be to make genomics, epigenetics and bioinformatics accessible to academic, industrial and commercial users.
