As one of two National Biocontainment Laboratories constructed under grants awarded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases/National Institutes of Health (NIAID/NIH), the Galveston National Laboratory (GNL) enables progress in our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms u
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 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
