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 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.
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.
FungiDB, one of the NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers, is an integrated genomic and functional genomic database for the kingdom Fungi.
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
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 IRD, one of the NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers, provides a suite of tools for analysis of all types of influenza data and a personal work bench on which each scientist can store lists of important data selected from that available on IRD.
The PapillomaVirus Episteme (PaVE) provides highly organized and curated papillomavirus genomics information and tools to the scientific community for research on the Papillomaviridae family of viruses. The PaVE consists of a database and web applications that support the storage, annotation, analysis, and exchange of information. To the extent possible, the PaVE adopts an open source software approach and emphasizes integration and reuse of existing tools.
PATRIC, one of the NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers, is an information system designed to support the biomedical research community’s work on bacterial infectious diseases via integration of vital pathogen information with rich data and analysis tools.
The Systems Biology Consortium for Infectious Diseases is a community of systems biologists who aim to integrate experimental biology and computational tools and modeling across temporal and spatial scales towards a better understanding of infectious diseases.
The tools in the Systems Immunology Toolkit will collectively allow you to upload microarray data, view that data on a gene-by-gene basis, overlay clinical data, analyze your data using a modular framework, compare your data to other datasets and diseases, and get a quick functional interpretatio
TrialShare is a transformative approach to data-sharing that enables clinical trial transparency.
VectorBase, one of the NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRC), provides genomic, phenotypic and population-centric data to the scientific community for invertebrate vectors of human pathogens.
The Virus Pathogen Resource (ViPR), one of the NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers, is a publicly available one-stop database and analysis resource that supports the research of viral pathogens in the NIAID Category A-C Priority Pathogen lists and those causing (
