A significant number of visitors access our website in order to use online bioinformatics tools and databases that are hosted in our Linux server at the South African Medical Research Council. Popular tools and databases of our website include HIV, HBV, HCV, HPV and HTLV-1 subtyping tools, the mirror of Stanford HIVDB and SATuRN RegaDB.
Another feature of our website is that distributes all of our publications as full text and open access PDF documents. At present, we are producing PowerPoint presentations and short digital videos that summarize the results of our publications.
