Bioinformatics Resource Centers

The Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRCs) for Infectious Diseases program was initiated in 2004 with the main objective of collecting, archiving, updating, and integrating a variety of research data and providing such information through user friendly interfaces and computational analysis tools to be made freely available to the scientific community.

Main Areas of Focus

Targeted Pathogens

The six BRCs each specialize in a different group of pathogens. Pathogens examined by the BRCs include, but are not limited to, those in the NIAID list of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, which includes NIAID Category A-C priority pathogens. The BRCs specialize in the following groups of pathogens:

  • All bacterial species
  • All viral families including influenza virus
  • All eukaryotic pathogen species including fungi
  • Invertebrate vectors of human pathogens
Awards

The BRCs provide data, tools, and services related to the targeted groups of pathogens, which can be accessed through publicly available sites.
