Male mosquitoes swarm to find mates, but the characteristics of these swarms have not often been quantitatively analyzed in the field.
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 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 National Institutes of Health (NIH) AIDS Reagent Program provides critical research reagents and resources to the scientific community. The ARP acquires, develops, and produces state-of-the-art reagents and provides these reagents at no cost to qualified investigators throughout the world.
The Non-Obese Diabetic (NOD) mouse, which spontaneously develops type 1 diabetes, is a valuable animal model that is used extensively in research exploring the etiology, prevention, and treatment of this disease.
The Orfeome Project is part of the NIAID-supported Functional Genomics Program.
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.
The Primary Immunodeficiency (PI) Diseases Registry collects validated data on all PI diagnoses from patients who give Informed Consent. The de-identified data in the registry is freely disseminated to those with research questions about PI diseases.
The Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases provide the research community with:
