South Africa’s CPGR to partner with the Sunflower Fund to stimulate medical innovation in Africa through access to high-resolution HLA testing and data aggregation
Foundations in ‘omics’ course
The CPGR is now offering a course that takes 6 participants from standard molecular technologies to advanced ‘omics’ application in 3 days.
The course content includes project design, ethics, quality management systems, NGS technology and basic Bioinformatics.
The Centre for Proteomic and Genomic Research (CPGR) is a non-profit organisation providing state-of-the-art ‘omics’ services to the life science and biotech communities in South Africa. Based in Cape Town, we combine state-of-the-art, information-rich genomic and proteomic technologies with bio-computational pipelines to create-fit-for-purpose offerings for customers in academia and industry.
Through CPGR, scientists will have convenient access to high-end discovery and targeted molecular technologies, thereby facilitating hypothesis-generating and -validating work under one operational umbrella. The CPGR hosts a suit of Genomics and Proteomics platforms that allow the design and execution of projects using single or a combination of ‘omics’ methodologies to generate targeted and systems biological insights. Embedded in an ISO 9001:2008 certified environment experimental outputs will be geared for further conversion into biomarker assays or routine applications, thus enhancing Translational Research endeavours.

The CPGR selected ISO 9001:2015 as the standard for its Quality Management System to ensure outputs of the highest quality are generated.
Quality is a mind-set
It is part of our service processes, product development and communication
Quality facilitates learning
It enhances cross-talk between different areas of activity in the organisation and leads to greater cohesion and cooperation of resources
Quality boosts innovation
Quality is relevant for the development of new service or product offerings, originating internally or outside of the CPGR.
