Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases

The Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases (SGCID) apply state-of-the-art high-throughput technologies and methodologies to experimentally characterize the three dimensional (3-D) atomic structure of proteins or other molecules that play an important biological role in human pathogens and infectious diseases, especially those in the NIAID Category A-C priority lists and organisms causing emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. The SGCID Centers conduct studies for characterizing molecular functions and biochemical properties of selected targets and structure-guided design and functional evaluation of drug targets and vaccine candidates. Collectively the SGCID centers have deposited over 2100 structures in the Protein Data Bank.
