The IGBB is a member of the NIH-funded Mississippi IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (Mississippi INBRE or MS-INBRE), a program designed to build biomedical infrastructure throughout the state. Through MS-INBRE, Mississippi students and faculty at Mississippi's undergraduate institutions are (1) trained in biomedical research techniques, (2) given the opportunity to work with top researchers at Mississippi's major research universities, (3) afforded access to state-of-the-art bioscience equipment, and (4) provided with assistance in preparing grant proposals. The IGBB serves as the MS-INBRE proteomics/computational biology core. For more information about MS-INBRE, click here.

This study reports four sporadic cases of H3N2 canine influenza in Southern China, which were identified from sick dogs from May 2006 to October 2007. The evolutionary analysis showed that all eight segments of these four viruses are avian-origin and phylogenetically close to the H3N2 canine influenza viruses reported earlier in South Korea. Systematic surveillance is required to monitor the disease and evolutionary behavior of this virus in canine populations in China.
