Pathogen Research Databases
The HIV and HCV databases contain data on viral genetic sequences, immunological epitopes, drug resistance-associated mutations, and vaccine trials. The websites also gives access to a large number of tools that can be used to analyze these data. These projects are funded by the Division of AIDS of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) database project is funded by the Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The HCV database project started as a spin-off from the HIV database project. There are two databases for HCV, a sequence database and a database of immunological epitopes. They both come with a set of tools that still partially overlap with those offered by the HIV site.
The Influenza Sequence Database is a curated database of nucleotide sequences. It is intended to provide the research community with easy sequence deposit and retrieval capabilities, together with tools tailored, in particular, to the analysis of hemagglutinin and neuraminidase sequences.
These specialized databases are an expansion of the human papilloma virus project funded by NIAID, within the NIH, Bethesda, Maryland. The scope of this project includes both compilation and analysis of molecular sequence information pertaining to sexually transmitted bacteria and viruses.
