    Influenza Informatics in the BioHealthBase Bioinformatics Resource Center

    Richard H. Scheuermann, Ph.D.Department of PathologyU.T. Southwestern Medical Center

  • BioHealthBase BRCBioinformatics Resource Centers for Biodefense and Emerging/Re-emerging Infectious Diseases program funded by NIAID (www.brc-central.org)8 centers fundedBioHealthBase (www.biohealthbase.org) is an integrated resourceInterrelates data from NCBI, UniProt, Pfam, and other sourcesDirect summary and visualization of integrated dataLinkouts to source data sites for additional data detailsAllows one-stop shopping for science researchersBioHealthBase provides value-added, pre-computed dataValuable processed data not available elsewhereProtein structural and functional predictionsSequence alignment and polymorphism analysisPredicted immunological epitopesBioHealthBase provides a forum for displaying collaborative dataPathways with Reactome; epitopes with Immune Epitope DatabaseBioHealthBase emphasizes host-pathogen interactionsPathogen effects on host cellular pathwaysImmune response to pathogen infectionSupport of research related to vaccine, therapeutic and diagnostic development

  • CEIRSMotivationlay the groundwork for the development of new and improved control measures understanding how influenza viruses evolve, adapt and transmitidentifying immunological factors that determine disease outcomeResearch AreasResearch Area 1: Animal Influenza Surveillance Conduct prospective international and/or domestic animal influenza surveillance for the rapid detection and characterization of influenza viruses with pandemic potential.Research Area 2: Pathogenesis and Host Response Research Conduct research to enhance understanding of the molecular, ecological, and/or environmental factors that influence pathogenesis, transmission, and evolution of influenza viruses; and characterize the protective immune response.

  • IDO scales of granularityHost-pathogen interactions occurs at a variety of scalesEcosystemOrganismOrganCellMoleculeSurveillancePathogenesis

  • IDO scales & termsEcosystem - transmission, geographic location, population density, routes of migration, specimen isolation procedure, specimen isolation source, vector, carrier, reservoir, environment, prevalenceOrganisms - latency, reactivation, disease progression, innate immune response, adaptive immune response, cytokine storm, symptoms (consumption, night sweats, fever, weight loss, wasting, immunosuppression), sterile eradication, delayed-type hypersensitivity, vaccine, surrogate markers of protection, viral load, animal model, pathogenesis, route of treatment, protection, resistance, sensitive, tuberculosis, human immunodeficiency syndrome, infective endocarditisOrgan - granuloma, caseous necrosis, inflammation, endocarditis, lung, peripheral blood, cavity, pericavitary tissue, distant lung, immune system, mucosa, gut lumen, lymph node, inductive site, effector site, tissue damage, Cell - phagocytosis, pathogen sensing, cytotoxicity, T cells, B cells, macrophages, dendritic cells, bacterium, antibiotic drug, antiviral drug, cell autonomous apoptosis, bystander apoptosis, antigen presentation, infected, activatedMolecules - transport/binding proteins, cell wall synthesis, two component systems, chaperones, detoxification (glyoxalase), DNA repair, lipid biosynthesis, fatty acid degradation, cell surface variable proteins, methylglyoxal, advanced glycation end products, reactive oxygen intermediates (ROIs)
