Computer Scientists Use Taverna to Help Identify Livestock Genes to Unlock Protection Against One of Africa’s Oldest Animal Plagues

An international research team, with the help of Taverna, has found two genes that may prove of vital importance to the lives and livelihoods of millions of farmers in a tsetse-fly-plagued swathe of Africa the size of the United States.

The team’s results were published on May 17 2011 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The work highlights the key role that computer scientists and E-Science now play in supporting and driving biological research in the post-genome age.
