The Archive includes 181 reassortants or mutants of influenza viruses prevalent during the period 1933-2000. These reassortants were produced or the mutants were discovered in the laboratory of E.D. Kilbourne for more than 43 years. A number of the reassortants were designed as high yield, commercially-used vaccine viruses under FDA/CBER sponsorship, and others were produced under a remarkable arrangement of shared funding by the major American influenza vaccine manufacturers. However, the majority of the viruses have been designed (and employed) as research reagents.
The Edwin Kilbourne's collection is currently stored and distributed by BEI Resources.
