NIAID and the National Human Genome Research Institute are collaborating in a coordinated sequencing effort to provide publicly available genomic data for the most significant eukaryotic pathogens and disease vectors. In November 2006, a workshop (PDF) was held which brought together experts in eukaryotic pathogens, disease vectors, genetic sequencing, bioinformatics, infectious diseases, and global health to identify and prioritize the most significant human eukaryotic pathogens and vectors in need of sequencing.
