The Systems Biology for Infectious Diseases Research Programs develop and validate predictive models of infectious disease initiation, progression, and outcomes. These models are derived from the study of the architecture and dynamics of systems-wide host/pathogen molecular interaction networks during infection, using integrated datasets generated from a combination of “omics” technologies. The research findings will provide a deeper understanding of the overall complexity of the biological, biochemical, and biophysical molecular processes within microbial organisms as well as their interaction with the host.
Main Areas of Focus
- To provide data and reagents that result from research conducted
- To provide training for the broader infectious disease scientific community to promote the use of the systems biology approach
