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 Clinical Study Support Team (CSST) is a deployable team with the primary objective of developing and fostering overseas relationships through the support of research studies and clinical trials involving pathogens of high consequence.

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 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 NIAID Centralized Sequencing Program serves as a genomics resource for NIAID human subjects research studies to help address interrelated challenges in clinical care and NIAID Intramural research. Any NIAID participant is eligible to receive genome sequencing and associated services through this protocol.

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 Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases provide the research community with: 3-D protein structures and protein-ligand complexes; Sequence-verified clones and peptides; Services that deliver requested 3-D structure determination; and Molecular screening of proteins in complex with inhibitors, cofactors and substrate analogs

The Systems Biology Consortium for Infectious Diseases is a community of systems biologists who integrate experimental biology, computational tools and modeling across temporal and spatial scales to improve our understanding of infectious disease

The NIAID TB Portals Program is a multi-national collaboration for tuberculosis (TB) data sharing and analysis to advance TB research.

The Throughput Ranking by Iterative Analysis of Genomic Enrichment (TRIAGE) platform is designed to facilitate prediction, analysis, and hypothesis generation from High-throughput genomic studies such as those done by CRISPR, RNAseq, proteomic, and clinical sequencing studies.

TBRNAT presents all known M. tuberculosis transcriptional factors that regulate the expression of a gene of interest as an interactive regulatory network along with additional data in tabular form.

The Vaccine Adjuvant Compendium (VAC) was launched in 2021 by the NIAID Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Transplantation (DAIT) to foster collaborations between NIAID-supported adjuvant researchers and the broader scientific community.
