Male mosquitoes swarm to find mates, but the characteristics of these swarms have not often been quantitatively analyzed in the field.
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.
Nephele is a microbiome analysis engine which brings together microbiome data and analysis tools in a cloud computing environment. It offers robust, multi-step microbiome analysis pipelines, with no setup time or cost.
The Gnotobiotic Animal Facility houses purchased experimental mice in experimental isolators that serve as important resources for researchers studying the microbiome. The mice in this facility are germ-free, i.e., born and raised in absence of live microbes.
MALDI Biotyper (MBT) is a technology that identifies microorganisms using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry to measure a unique peptide mass fingerprint.
NIAID’s microbiome sequencing facility studies the structure and function of the microbiome associated with various hosts and body sites. This facility has one dedicated team and is equipped with an Ilumina MiSeq, which can sequence whole genomes or specific amplicons.
The NIH 3D Print Exchange provides models in formats that are readily compatible with 3D printers, and offers a unique set of tools to create and share 3D-printable models related to biomedical science.
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.
SPICE is a data-mining software application that analyzes large FLOWJO data sets from polychromatic flow cytometry and organizes the normalized data graphically. SPICE enables users to discover potential correlations in their experimental data within complex data sets.
