The NMPDR provided curated annotations in an environment for comparative analysis of genomes and biological subsystems, with an emphasis on the food-borne pathogens Campylobacter, Listeria, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Vibrio; as well as the STD pathogens Chlamydiaceae, Haemophilus, Mycoplasma, Neisseria, Treponema, and Ureaplasma.

Notice to NMPDR Users

The NMPDR BRC contract ended in December 2009. At that time we ceased maintenance of the NMPDR web resource and data. The PATRIC team, located at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute, created and maintains a new consolidated BRC for all of the NIAID category A-C priority pathogenic bacteria. NMPDR is transferring data and software associated to PATRIC for incorporation into their new Web-based bioinformatics resource. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this transition.

tip FIGfams: FIGfams are sets of similar genes with the same functional role. If you enter a protein sequence into the form on the main FIGfam page, you can find all the genes in the Sprout Database with the same functional role and a similar sequence of proteins.

This edition of the NMPDR includes 47 archaeal, 725 bacterial, and 29 eukaryal genomes with 3,257,100 genetic features, of which 1,338,895 are in FIGfams curated using 616 active subsystems.

Notice to NMPDR Users - The NMPDR BRC contract has ended and bacterial data from NMPDR has been transferred to PATRIC (, a new consolidated BRC for all NIAID category A-C priority pathogenic bacteria. NMPDR was a collaboration among researchers from the Computation Institute of the University of Chicago, the Fellowship for Interpretation of Genomes (FIG), Argonne National Laboratory, and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois. NMPDR is funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract HHSN266200400042C.
