Neisseria genome libraries

MRF Meningococcus Genome MRF logoLibrary

Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) commissioned the creation of a comprehensive online library of the genomes of all meningococcal disease isolates for 2009-2013 in the UK, open to scientists anywhere in the world. The aim was to enable advancement in serogroup B meningococcal vaccine research, making a lasting contribution to MenB vaccine development. This has been, and continues to be a major focus of work at MRF, whose trustees place particular emphasis on research into prevention of serogroup B meningococcal disease.

The library has continually expanded and includes data from recent years and from all four countries of the United Kingdom.

More details can be found on the MRF website.

The genome library is curated by Holly Bratcher.
