To drive the development of a global resource of renewable affinity reagents (monoclonal antibodies) to cancer-associated targets for the research community, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) launched the Antibody Characterization Program. The goal of the program, which is part of the Office of Cancer Clinical Proteomics Research, is to facilitate the production, characterization and distribution of these valuable reagents to the global community in order to support protein/peptide measurement and analysis efforts.
The Antibody Portal, serves as a gateway that provides visible access to a large number of reagents and accompanying characterization data to the research and industrial community. Antigens and antibodies are expressed, purified and characterized using standard operating procedures (SOPs), with all accompanying protocols and data made available to the public.

The National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) are cooperative agreement awards that are funded under the NIH Common Fund. The Centers are intended to be the core of the networked national effort to build the computational infrastructure for biomedical computing in the nation, the National Program of Excellence in Biomedical Computing (NPEBC). There are seven funded Centers that cover systems biology, image processing, biophysical modeling, biomedical ontologies, information integration, and tools for gene-phenotype and disease analysis. The centers will create innovative software programs and other tools that enable the biomedical community to integrate, analyze, model, simulate, and share data on human health and disease. Each Center has Cores that are focused on (1) computational science, (2) biomedical computational science and (3) driving biological projects whose intent is to drive the interaction between computational and biomedical computational science. In addition to the Centers, the NIH has a number of active program announcements to develop collaborations with the biomedical research community—this includes announcements from the Biomedical Information Science and Technology Initiative (BISTI) and the Program for Collaborations with National Centers for Biomedical Computing. There are numerous efforts in education and training that emanate from the Centers and there is an annual all hands meeting.
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) led the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) contribution to the international Human Genome Project, which had as its primary goal the sequencing of the human genome. This project was successfully completed in April 2003. Now, the NHGRI's mission has expanded to encompass a broad range of studies aimed at understanding the structure and function of the human genome and its role in health and disease.
To that end NHGRI supports the development of resources and technology that will accelerate genome research and its application to human health. A critical part of the NHGRI mission continues to be the study of the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research. NHGRI also supports the training of investigators and the dissemination of genome information to the public and to health professionals.
