The Tufts New England Regional Biosafety Laboratory (RBL) is one of the NIAID-supported Regional Biocontainment Laboratories.
The University of Chicago Howard T. Ricketts Laboratory (HTRL) is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories. The HTRL is a state of the art BSL-3 facility constructed to support research on bacterial and viral pathogens.
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.
