This month, we focused our newsletter on KRISP participation in the largest biotechnology innovation convention in the world, BIO2019. KRISP is part of the official South African delegation and is profiled as an inspiring organization for economic development in South Africa. In the newsletter, we also cover our high-throughput Sanger and Illumina sequencing services, growing bioinformatics team and KRISP & Thermo Fisher Scientific training program in Africa.
