PATRIC[1] (Pathosystems Resource Integration Center) was a bacterial bioinformatics website from the Bioinformatics Resource Center, originally created in 2004.[2] It has since been combined with the Influenza Research Database and the Virus Pathogen Database and Analysis Resource Center to create the Bacterial and Viral Bioinformatics Resource Center (BV-BRC).[3] It is an information system that integrates databases and analysis tools. It focuses on various data (transcriptomic, proteomic, structural, and biochemical) related to bacterial pathogens. PATRIC facilitates integration of various types of pathogen information to support biomedical research on bacterial infectious diseases.

History edit

PATRIC was started as a project of Virginia Tech's Cyberinfrastructure Division and is funded by the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). PATRIC utilizes available bacterial phylogenomic data, proteomic data, and other various experiment pieces of data linked to specific pathogens from numerous sources.[4] The PATRIC platform provides an interface for comparative genomics. In 2019, the NIAID issued further funding to Dr. Rick Stevens at the University of Chicago for the Bioinformatics Resource Center, the current umbrella under which PATRIC is contained.[5]
