VBI awarded $27 million from NIH to support infectious disease research
Date:10/5/2009

CIG will build on its successes and experiences gained in executing PATRIC by providing a new, expanded web-based system that serves as a robust point of entry for access to a host of information, tools and resources for selected NIAID category A-C priority bacterial pathogen species.

In PATRIC 2.0, CIG will work with a wide range of collaborators. Rick Stevens, Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago and Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment, and Life Sciences at Argonne National Laboratory, remarked: "We will be working closely with the bacterial BRC to make our RAST annotation services available as a key resource to the scientific community. RAST is a fully automated genomics tool that can greatly help in accelerating the identification of genes and assigning functions to those genes."

Text mining capabilities will also be a key offering for the new bioinformatics center. Said Sophia Ananiadou, Professor in Computer Science, University of Manchester and Director of the UK National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM): "We will collaborate with the new BRC to provide tools and resources that will facilitate the extraction of high-quality information from a wide range of text-based information sources. This effort dovetails nicely with one of the key priorities of the BRC project, namely to facilitate the availability of biological information on bacterial pathogens to the wider scientific community."

Said Sobral, "As part of our on-going commitment to the biomedical research community, we will be looking to integrate existing and future collaborations in immunology, biosystems modeling, and large-scale population-based modeling into our offerings. Our goal will be to fully involve the infectious disease community as we work to meet their research needs. "
