Structures, structures, and structures: Structural genomics of infectious disease drug targets: the SSGCID

Cool new data set available for those studying infectious disease.  See the paper: Structural genomics of infectious disease drug targets: the SSGCID

This is a large scale effort to determine crystal structure of importance for infectious disease studies.  And there is a whole series of papers coming out in “Acta Crystallographica Section F Structural Biology and Crystallization Communications

Plus all the papers about these structures are freely available (though I note – they refer to these as “Open Access” but really they mean “Available at no charge”

Examples of papers include:

And many more.  

Also see their press release here.

Author: Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
