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.


Purpose: To find a root of a phylogenetic tree and estimate the evolutionary rate(s), by either outgrouping, or single or multiple time point optimization.

How to use: Paste or upload a tree file in standard Newick format and choose a rooting method. To calculate the evolutionary rate, time point data must also be provided. For details, see TreeRate Explanation.

Paste your Newick tree
Or upload Newick tree file
Or put job number
Rooting method
By outgroup Branch length
By single time point Generalized midpoint optimization 
Simple midpoint
By multiple time points Minimum sum of variance optimization
E-mail Always email results in time point optimization
