Omics-LHV Profiling of Host Response to West Nile Virus Infection


West Nile virus (WNV) is classified as a Category B priority pathogen (Flaviviridae) by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and are known to cause severe and even fatal infections in humans where lethal host-associated mechanisms are not clearly defined. The NIAID Modeling Host Responses to Understand Severe Human Virus Infections Research Program project (2013 - 2018) aimed to develop an improved comprehensive understanding of the host response to a suite of viruses causing lethal infections leveraging a systems biology approach. This project was comprised of a multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in virology, host genetics, advanced high-throughput technologies, computational modeling, and data management integration strategies for quantifying the host immune response to cellular trafficking activities identified in primary host tissues and cell lines.


Herein, PNNL sub-projects provide a never before released comprehensive infectious disease collection of primary and secondary transformation multi-Omics data profiling a series of priority pathogen primary experimental studies for enhanced open-access to viral Omics lifecycle datasets and project metadata. The knowledge gained from this work is expected to provide a strong foundation in facilitating a better understanding and treatment of West Nile virus infections in humans for development of improved strategies for intervening with lethal virus disease, and unveiling mechanisms from highly collaborative state-of-the-art systems biology methodologies and unique data capture capabilities.

Accessible Secondary DOI Digital Data Downloads

Secondary host-associated viral dataset downloads contain one or more statistically processed (normalization data transformation)  quantitative dataset collections resulting in qualitative expression analyses of primary host-pathogen experimental study designs. Leveraging unique high-resolution Omics capabilities for proteomics (P), metabolomics (M), lipidomics (L), and transcriptomics (T) dataset downloads each have a direct relationship to a primary sample submission corresponding to a specific West Nile virus [NCBITAXON:11082] (WNV-NY99 382) experimental infection study.

  • (P) Protein quantification by liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS)
  • (M) Metabolite quantification by gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS)
  • (L) Lipid quantification by liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS)
  • (T) Expression profiling by array (mRNA) and/or Non-coding RNA profiling by array (miRNA)
