New and interactive section of BioAfrica and SATuRN website

One of our main aims for this development is for users and collaborators to become more involved in the website. It has added over 100 new webpages to, including blogs, open access publications, media coverage, clinical cases tutorials and twitter. It has also increased the number of people collaborating in the development of our website!
