VIDA 2.0: Virus Database
Title: VIDA 2.0: Virus Database
Title abbreviated: VIDA 2.0
Creator: Kellam, Paul; et al.
Abstract: The Virus Database at University College London has been developed as a system to organize animal virus open reading frame sequences. All known and predicted protein sequences from complete and partial genomes of particular virus families are extracted from GenBank and filtered to remove 100% redundancy. On the basis of sequence similarity the sequences are then clustered into homologous protein families (HPFs). The families are enriched with annotations including function and functional classification, related protein structures, taxonomy, length of the proteins, boundaries of the conserved region/s, virus-specific gene name and links to EMBL entries and SWISSPROT. It is also possible to retrieve the pre-aligned conserved sequence regions or complete protein sequences as fasta format files. Queries can be performed using the family number, virus name, protein function, GenBank identification number or, alternatively, any keyword/s. [Information of the supplier]
