The Chicago Center for Functional Annotation (CCFA) is defining gene function on multiple scales, using a multi-disciplinary set of cellular, genetic, molecular, and biochemical approaches.

The core services group at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF‑Frederick) provides cell culture, hematology, hemostasis, clinical chemistry, microbiology, and molecular virology support for monitoring animals in infectious disease studies.

The drug screening team at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF‑Frederick) can test and characterize the antiviral activity of novel compounds, drugs, and antibodies against multiple viruses in multiple cell lines under a variety of conditions.

The electron microscopy laboratory at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF‑Frederick) has a variety of capabilities for the analysis of biological samples at an ultrastructural level.

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.

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.
