The rise in demand from Asia, coupled with the alleged involvement of crime syndicates and the willingness to pay top dollar on the black market has driven the gruesome and tragic killings on the continent.
Life Technologies is donating 4 protons and 4 ion chefs / one touch2 to help the sequencing of 100 orphan crops in Africa. The novel/de-novo sequencing will be done with the help of BGI (Beijing Genomics- China) and the resequencing studies will be carried out by ICRAF where the protons will be placed in a dedicated sequencing lab.
Africa Biosystems Limited believes that through the use of world class life science tools, capabilities and processes we can enable the EAC to leapfrog older crime-fighting techniques to enhance the efforts of our police forces, legal system and scientists, bringing peace , stability and justice to our citizens. We have developed the following concept paper that outlines the need for a forensic lab in Uganda,
