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: This tool highlights matches, mismatches, transition and transversion mutations, and silent and non-silent mutations in aligned protein or nucleotide sequences. This tool is particularly useful for visualizing potential recombination and hypermutation in closely-related sequences. See Highlighter Explanation.

  Mismatches   Transitions and Transversions   Silent and Non-silent Mutations   Matches
