Our mission: The Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases is a consortium of laboratories using state-of-the-art structural biology methods to determine the 3-D structures of proteins from pathogens in the NIAID Category A-C priority lists and organisms causing emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. We do this as a free service to the scientific community! Members of the scientific community are encouraged to submit their targets of interest to CSGID by using our online form: Submit/check your proposal now!
For more detailed information about our mission, please refer to the CSGID brochure (pdf) and the Overview.
