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.

*All organizations participating in each BRC are listed on the corresponding website.

**Pathogens examined by the BRC 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. For the detailed description of all pathogens covered follow the links to the corresponding BRC website.

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
