Genome Detective Virus Tool Version 1.100

The Virus tool assigns taxonomic names to sequences from eukaryotic viruses and phages. The taxonomic rank which gets assigned is based on availability of reference genomes in RefSeq, and is mostly at species level. At the moment 6692 distinct taxonomic names are assigned based on 8670 reference sequences. Subtyping tools, for the identification of subspecies, are available for 14 viruses.

You can submit sequences/contigs or short reads NGS data. Up to 2000 FASTA sequences may be submitted at once. The free service only allows one NGS analysis at a time. For batch analyses of NGS data, please contact us.

Available tools

Subtyping tools, identifying subspecies using phylogenetic analysis, are currently available for 14 viruses.

You can submit sequences/contigs in FASTA format or short reads NGS data in FASTQ format. The public service only allows one NGS analysis at a time due to computational demand. For batch analyses of NGS data, please contact us.
