Zika virus resource page provides access to nucleotide, protein sequences from latest outbreakTuesday, February 23, 2016
The new Zika virus resource page makes it easy to find and analyze relevant sequence data. The page includes links to the following Zika virus data at NCBI: nucleotide and protein sequences, the reference genome with updated mature peptide annotation, and publications.
In addition, a Zika database will be added to the NCBI Virus Variation resource. This database will use specialized pipelines to annotate genes, proteins and mature peptides, and standardize sample metadata. With this specialized database, you’ll be able to:
- Quickly find the sequences you need, through an intuitive search interface for all viral sequences using standardized protein/gene names and metadata,
- Select the latest sequences based on date criteria or sorting of results,
- Download sequences in many formats or find links to sequences in NCBI databases, and
- Analyze sequences using multiple sequence alignments and phylogenetic trees.
