Resources for Researchers
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.
FungiDB, one of the NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Centers, is an integrated genomic and functional genomic database for the kingdom Fungi.
The Immcantation framework is developed as a start-to-finish analytical ecosystem for large-scale characterization of B cell receptor (BCR) and T cell receptor (TCR) repertoires from high-throughput adaptive immune receptor repertoire sequencing (AIRR-seq) datasets.
The In Vitro Assessment for Antimicrobial Activity program provides capability in a broad range of in vitro assessments to evaluate promising candidate countermeasures for antimicrobial activity against microbial pathogens and vectors, including those derived from clinical speci
The Interventional Agent Development Services program provides services to facilitate preclinical development of therapeutics and new in vivo diagnostics for infectious disease-causing pathogens and/or toxins.
Note: Devices are excluded.
The Orfeome Project is part of the NIAID-supported Functional Genomics Program.
The Phase I Clinical Trial Units for Therapeutics support the design, development, implementation, and conduct of Phase I clinical trials to assess safety, pharmacokinetics, and/or pharmacodynamics of licensed and investigational therapeutic products, including immunomodulatory agents and monoclo
Preclinical models support animal models and animal replacement technologies development and refinement as well as testing services, ranging from screening and proof-of-concept to GLP efficacy studies.
This Gene Set Enrichment-type test designed for analysis of microarray and RNASeq data is designed to provide a faster, more accurate, and easier to understand test for gene expression studies. QuSAGE extends previous methods with a complete probability density function (PDF).
NIAID-funded researchers at ATCC and Tufts University have developed SOPs for creating continuous in vitro culture systems for the intestinal parasite Cryptosporidium.
