The localization of complex cobordism cohomology theory $MU$ at a prime $p$, hence the p-localization $MU_{(p)}$, decomposes as a direct sum. The direct summands are the Brown-Peterson spectra.
For each prime $p$ there is an unique commutative ring spectrum $B P$ which is a retract of $M U_{(p)}$ such that the map $MU_{(p)} \to B P$ is multiplicative and such that

Due to (Brown-Peterson 66), recalled as (Ravenel, theorem, 4.1.12).

The formal group law of Brown-Peterson cohomology theory is universal for $p$-local complex oriented cohomology theories in that $\mathbb{G}_{B P}$ is universal among $p$-local, p-typical formal group laws.
(…)
$B P$ is related to p-typical formal groups as MU is to formal groups.
The structure of Hopf algebroid over a commutative base on the dual $BP$-Steenrod algebra $BP_\bullet(BP)$ is described by the Adams-Quillen theorem.
The $p$-component of the $E^2$-term of the Adams-Novikov spectral sequence for the sphere spectrum, hence the one converging to the stable homotopy groups of spheres $\pi_\ast(\mathbb{S})$ is
recalled e.g. as Ravenel, theorem 1.4.2
The spectrum $B P$ can be constructed as a CW spectrum (cf. Priddy 1980) starting from the $p$-local sphere spectrum $S^0 = X_0$ by minimally attaching cells to $X_n$ to kill $\pi_{2n+1}(X_n)$.
