Gambian DINO (DINO_G) install and run
MRC Keneba leads many nutrition programmes in the Gambia and has utilised a country-specific DINO for its projects over many years (1) (2). Gambian DINO was originally developed by MRC Human Nutrition Research around 2005. Food composition data was mainly derived from the food composition tables for use in The Gambia (3) with additional data taken from food composition tables for Mali (4), Africa (5) and the UK (6). The version supplied here was maintained and used in research in conjunction with MRC Keneba and the MRC Nutrition and Bone Health Programme up until the end of 2020.
