The PFGRC, operated at TIGR since late 2001 under a NIAID contract, provides microarray resources and other reagents for qualifying scientists.
The PFGRC started by producing microarrays for three pathogens -- Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, and Salmonella typhimurium -- that cause several serious diseases, including salmonella, staph infections and strep infections.
The results of this investigation carried out by FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) researchers using the Affymetrix FDA-ECSG array demonstrate its great potential for use in evolutionary, epidemiological, and forensics studies for strain identification and discrimination," said Robert Fleischmann of the JCVI and co-director of the PFGRC.
