NIGMS Legacy Community-Wide Scientific Resources

No active Funding Opportunity Announcement. The final program announcement, PAR-19-208​​, expired 6/15/2019

The legacy community-wide scientific resources program provides supports the existing resources for maintenance activities only. NIGMS defines a resource as a non-hypothesis-driven activity to provide data, materials, tools or services that are essential to making the most timely, high quality and cost-efficient progress in a field, that has great potential for having high value to a community of researchers that the Institute supports.

Biomedical Mass Spectrometry Resource
Washington University

R24 Grant Number: R24GM136766
Principal Investigator: Michael L. Gross, Ph.D.
The Biomedical Mass Spectrometry (MS) Resource develops novel MS-based solutions to analytical challenges, and provides service, collaboration, and training for MS-based characterization, identification and quantification of all biomolecular classes extracted from in vitro and in vivo model systems.

Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC)
University of Utah

R24 Grant Number: R24GM136986
Principal Investigator: Rob S. MacLeod, Ph.D., Christopher R. Johnson, Ph.D., Ross T. Whitaker, Ph.D.
The CIBC Legacy Resource provides open-source software tools for biomedical image-based modeling, biomedical simulation and estimation, and the visualization of biomedical data.

GLYCAM-Web
University of Georgia

R24 Grant Number: R24GM136984
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Woods
GLYCAM-Web is dedicated to simplifying the prediction of three-dimensional structures of carbohydrates and macromolecular structures involving carbohydrates by providing access to online prediction tools and libraries.

Mass Spectrometry Resource Legacy Services
Boston University Medical Campus

R24 Grant Number: R24GM134210
Principal Investigator: Catherine E. Costello, Ph.D.
The Mass Spectometry Resource focuses on the needs of glycobiology for detailed structural elucidations and the profiling of complex mixtures of glycans. Reference data that illuminates glycan fragmentation pathways using multiple dissociation methods is compiled and deposited into public databases; new, user-friendly bioinformatics tools that the Resource has created for glycan analysis will be completed, tested and shared. Protocols and sets of reference data for Ion mobility-tandem mass spectrometry are compiled for the analysis of glycans and complex peptide mixtures, for characterization of noncovalent complexes, and for evaluation of new ExD cell designs being constructed by a small industry collaborator.​

National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (NCMIR)
University of California, San Diego

R24 Grant Number: R24GM137200
Principal Investigator: Mark H. Ellisman, Ph.D.
NCMIR provides services in computer-aided, advanced microscopy for the acquisition of structural and functional data in the dimensional range of 1 nm to 100 um, which encompasses macromolecules, subcellular structures and cells as a fee-for-service legacy resource, and disseminates microscopy probes and reagents as well as other established tools.
