Resources for Researchers
Heterogeneity in Human Immune Cells is a website providing interactive figures (iFigs) for a recent study of protein expression heterogeneity in human immune cells conducted by Dr.
Researchers involved with the NIAID Clinical Genomics Program study many diseases of the immune system that are rare and not well understood but often shed light on basic immune function and more common immune disorders.
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.
Simmune is a suite of software tools that guides the user through the multiple hierarchical scales of cellular behavior, facilitating the generation of comprehensive models.
