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 document the nature and context of nucleotide substitutions in a sequence population relative to a reference sequence. See details below. For a simple "quick and dirty" scan for hypermutants, try the QC Tool.
Details: The first sequence in the input alignment will be used as the reference sequence, and each of the other sequences will be used as a query sequence. Please choose the reference sequence carefully. For example, for an intrapatient set, the reference should probably be the most common form in the first sampled time point; for a set of unrelated sequences, the reference should probably be the consensus sequence for the appropriate subtype.
