NIAID takes next genome step

microbe genes are suspected based on similarities to known genes, but a large number of genes are unique to one organism and have unknown functions.

The Pathogen Functional Genomics Resource Center will be a centralized training and resource facility that supports research on three to 10 important pathogens over the next three years. Establishing the center was a key recommendation of last year's scientific panel that met to develop an action plan for NIAID's genome research activities. The center will develop new technologies that enable scientists to more rapidly analyze gene function by simultaneously studying the whole genome rather than small regions or individual genes. The center will also train researchers on the latest techniques in functional genomics and will be a repository for required reagents. As the genomes of more pathogens are sequenced and technologies are developed to analyze the growing number of known genes, the center's repository function will become increasingly important.

The center's resources will be made available to the scientific community, and the procedures for access to those resources are currently in development. Updates on how researchers can apply to the center, plus additional information about the center's activities, can be found online at the following Web site: http://pfgrc.tigr.org. NIAID's Web site will also contain instructions for investigators who wish to apply.
