BRCs and Portal
The Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRCs) are sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to support the biomedical research community's work on infectious diseases. Each of the four centers specializes in a different group of pathogens including:
- PATRIC (PathoSystems Resource Integration Center) : all bacterial species
- ViPR (Virus Pathogen Resource) : all viral families
- EuPathDB (Eukaryotic Pathogen Database Resources) : all eukaryotic pathogen species
- VectorBase : invertebrate vectors of human pathogens
- BRC's Portal, Pathogen Portal, is a repository linking to all BRCs
GLRCE researchers will conduct collaborative research in the new Howard T. Ricketts Regional Biocontainment Laboratory being constructed by the University of Chicago at Argonne National Laboratory. More information about the lab can be found here.
