  • Durrheim, RJ; Riemer, KL (2012-04)
    Gold was discovered near present-day Johannesburg in 1886. Mining-induced seismicity was first encountered in the early 1900s when extensive stopes reached depths of several hundred meters. The State appointed committees ...
  • Van den Bergh, F; Wessels, Konrad J; Miteff, S; Van Zyl, TL; Gazendam, AD; Bachoo, AK (Taylor & Francis, 2012-08)
    Course resolution earth observation satellites offer large data sets with daily observations at global scales. These data sets represent a rich resource that, because of the high acquisition rate, allows the application ...
  • Sharma Grover, A; Plauche, M; Barnard, E; Kuun, C (2009-04)
    This paper presents the work in the design of a SDS for the provision of health information to caregivers of HIV positive children. The authors specifically address the frequently debated question of input modality in ...
  • Sharma Grover, A; Plauche, M; Barnard, E (IEEE, 2009-04)
    This paper presents our work in the design of a SDS for the provision of health information to caregivers of HIV positive children. We specifically address the frequently debated question of input modality in speech systems; ...
  • Van den Berg, N; Mbobela, P; Pillay, P; London, G; Morris, L; Maharaj, V; Khati, M (CSIR, 2011-02)
    A natural compound isolated from extracts of an indigenous plant in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, indicates neutralisation activity against HIV-1 pseudoviruses. This natural compound can potentially be used in a microbicide ...
  • Mufhandu, Hazel T; Alexandre, Kabamba B; Gray, ES; Morris, L; Khati, M (BioMed Central, 2012-09)
    Globally, HIV-1 subtype C is the most prevalent subtype, yet most antiretroviral drugs are developed against subtype B. UCLA1 RNA aptamer, which we previously showed neutralizes HIV-1 subtype C Env-pseudotyped viruses was ...
  • Rangel Lopes de Campos, W; Chirwa, N; London, G; Rotherham, LS; Morris, L; Mayosi, BM; Khati, M (Public Library of Science, 2014-10)
    HIV-associated cardiomyopathy (HIVCM) is of clinical concern in developing countries because of a high HIV-1 prevalence, especially subtype C, and limited access to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). For these ...
  • Malinga, L; Le Roux, WH (2009-07)
    The performance of three Run-Time Infrastructures (RTI) is measured. Two open source implementations (Portico version 0.8 and CERTI version 3.3.0) and one commercial implementation (MÄK version 3.2) have been subjected to ...
  • Grover, AS; Van Huyssteen, GB; Pretorius, MW (2010-05)
