The NIAID program in Systems Biology for Infectious Diseases Research utilizes a combination of computational and experimental methodologies to conduct research projects to analyze, identify, quantify, model, and predict the overall dynamics of the network of cellular molecular components of microbial organisms and their interactions with the host cells. The knowledge generated from the research projects, including research data, analytical software tools, computational models, experimental protocols, and reagents, is widely disseminated to the scientific community through publicly accessible databases and reagent repositories. The research findings will provide a deeper understanding of the overall complexity of the biological, biochemical, and biophysical molecular processes in microbial organisms as well as how the molecular events within the pathogen lead to the initiation and progression of infectious disease.
The research activities are carried out by
Research and associated data, protocols, and computational and statistical models will be made freely and publicly available to the scientific community through the research centers websites within four weeks of publication, or within one year of generation, whichever comes first and as agreed upon by the Project Officer.
Reagents will be made available through the centers.
