HCV Database
HCV sequence database
 



To our users Please note that the HCV database site is no longer funded. We try to keep the database updated and the tools running, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee we can provide help for using this site. Data won't be manually curated either.



The HCV database has requested support from NIH-DMID's Complete Genome Sequencing Initiative to sequence additional complete genomes for unusual HCV genotypes, so that the reference set can be expanded, and future naming conflicts can be prevented as much as possible. The support is limited to sequencing expertise and capacity, in this case from the Broad Institute at MIT. In keeping with NIH's data publication policy, the sequences will be made available to the public as soon as they are completed, but we expect a publication will result from this initiative. The paper will describe the new genomes and their implications for our knowledge of HCV, and will be written either at the end of the project or when enough genomes have been sequenced to justify a publication.

Currently, the following people participate in this effort, either by donating samples, or by isolating DNA from the samples that will be sent to the Broad Institute for sequencing. Bruce Birren at the Broad institute coordinates the technical details; the HCV database will coordinate the sample collection.

If you think you might be able to contribute some samples to this project, please let us know by sending an email to hcv-info@lanl.gov. We will update this list frequently.
