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:

For more detailed information about our mission, please refer to the CSGID brochure (pdf) and the Overview.
November 2016: In a new paper in Nature Microbiology, a team of CSGID researchers and community collaborators from Nortwestern University and University of Illinois has characterized an unconventional α-glucan metabolic pathway from the food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes.
