3D Reconstruction via Stereoscopy for the Study of Mosquito Swarms includes information on a simple method used recently to localize individual Anopheles gambiae in a swarm via stereoscopic image analysis of video footage swarms recorded in Doneguebougou, Mali.

NIAID Clinical Trials Data Repository, AccessClinicalData@NIAID, is an NIAID cloud-based, secure data platform that enables sharing of and access to anonymized individual, patient level clinical data sets from NIAID sponsored clinical trials to harness the power of data to generate new knowledge

The specimen repositories are a collaboration between the ACTG and IMPAACT clinical trial networks to make the large body of specimens collected for HIV research available to investigators.

The aerobiology section at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF‑Frederick) develops aerosol animal models of disease caused by high-consequence pathogens within animal biosafety level 4 (ABSL-4) containment laboratories.

The BEI Resources Repository is a central repository that supplies organisms and reagents to the broad community of microbiology and infectious diseases researchers. Materials are available through an online catalog.

The Bioinformatics and Computational Biosciences Branch (BCBB) offers a suite of scientific services and resources for the NIAID research community and its collaborators. BCBB provides expertise and computational solutions to researchers at all levels of experience.

The NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers provide data-driven, production-level, sustainable computational platforms to enable sharing and access to data, portable computational tools, and standards that support interoperability for the infectious diseases research community. 

The CIBMTR database contains data on outcomes of hematopoietic (blood and bone marrow) cell transplant (HCT) procedures.

The ChemDB database contains information extracted from scientific literature on the structure and activity of compounds that have been tested against HIV, opportunistic pathogens and TB.

The Chicago Center for Functional Annotation (CCFA) is defining gene function on multiple scales, using a multi-disciplinary set of cellular, genetic, molecular, and biochemical approaches.

ClinRegs is an online database of country-specific clinical research regulatory information designed to assist in planning and implementing international clinical research.

The STAT3base contains a listing of STAT3 mutations in human HIES identified in the Laboratory of Clinical Immunology and Microbiology as well as those published in the literature.

The Filariasis Research Reagent Resource Center (FR3) maintains oversight of filarial parasites, SOPs, and molecular reagents. FR3 is comprised of two divisions: The Parasite Resource Division and the Molecular Resources Division.

FLUTE is a Functional Genomics Center funded by NIAID, with the goal of discovering the roles of genes from Mtb with previously unknown functions. In addition FLUTE aims to establish an efficient pathway for identifying gene function that could serve as a paradigm for other bacterial species.

GUNK center is part of the NIAID Functional Genomics Program. This center was created to investigate the role of previously uncharacterized genes of A. baumannii in its ability to cause human disease. Three projects have been established to:

The GCID use and develop or improve innovative applications of genomic technologies, such as RNA sequencing and metagenomics, and provide rapid and cost-efficient production of high-quality genome sequences of microorganisms, invertebrate vectors of infectious diseases, and hosts and host microbiomes. Multiple strains and isolates of specific microbial species, populations and communities have been and continue to be sequenced.

The HIV Database & Analysis Unit provides an integrated repository of HIV sequence and immunology published data, by curating & maintaining a relational database with searchable web access for the scientific community; and (ii) develop web-based computation analysis methods and tools for

ImmPort is a Web portal that contains data from NIAID-funded immunology studies, including basic research and clinical trials. The portal provides online tools that allow users to analyze the data and visualize the results.

This free resource offers easy searching of experimental data characterizing antibody and T cell epitopes studied in humans, non-human primates, and other animal species.

The ImmuneSpace database is currently composed of 21 studies covering 10 types of assays and 2,500 total participants.

The portal brings together some exciting features including: links to BCBB’s training resources; a section of scripts, code, and programs created by NIAID researchers downloadable from GitHub; and a curated calendar of events with entries focused on bioinformatics and computational biology.

The NIAID Centralized Sequencing Program serves as a genomics resource for NIAID human subjects research studies to help address interrelated challenges in clinical care and NIAID Intramural research. Any NIAID participant is eligible to receive genome sequencing and associated services through this protocol.
