ATCC or the American Type Culture Collection is a nonprofit organization which collects, stores, and distributes standard reference microorganisms, cell lines and other materials for research and development.
The Australian National University (ANU) is a national research university located in Canberra, the capital of Australia.
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data.
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is an independent Australian federal government agency responsible for scientific research.
DELTA (DEscription Language for TAxonomy) is a data format used in taxonomy for recording descriptions of living things.
An epithet (from ἐπίθετον epitheton, neuter of ἐπίθετος epithetos, "attributed, added") is a byname, or a descriptive term (word or phrase), accompanying or occurring in place of a name and having entered common usage.
The GenBank sequence database is an open access, annotated collection of all publicly available nucleotide sequences and their protein translations.
In the fields of molecular biology and genetics, a genome is the genetic material of an organism.
The International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS), founded in 1927 as the International Society of Microbiology, is one of 31 Scientific Unions of the International Council for Science (ICSU).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is a United States government agency that supports fundamental research and education in all the non-medical fields of science and engineering.
Nucleic acids are biopolymers, or small biomolecules, essential to all known forms of life.
Prions are misfolded proteins that are associated with several fatal neurodegenerative diseases in animals and humans.
In biology, a taxon (plural taxa; back-formation from taxonomy) is a group of one or more populations of an organism or organisms seen by taxonomists to form a unit.
Taxonomy is the science of defining and naming groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics.
In zoological nomenclature, a type species (species typica) is the species name with which the name of a genus or subgenus is considered to be permanently taxonomically associated, i.e., the species that contains the biological type specimen(s).
In epidemiology, a disease vector is any agent that carries and transmits an infectious pathogen into another living organism; most agents regarded as vectors are organisms, such as intermediate parasites or microbes, but it could be an inanimate medium of infection such as dust particles.
Viroids are the smallest infectious pathogens known.
Virology is the study of viruses – submicroscopic, parasitic particles of genetic material contained in a protein coat – and virus-like agents.
A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms.
Virus classification is the process of naming viruses and placing them into a taxonomic system.
