Influenza Genome Sequencing Project


Introduction and goals of the Influenza Genome Sequencing Project

Sequencing Request Process

Procedures for submitting samples to be sequenced

Data and Reagent Sharing and Release Policies

NIAID policy for releasing project data

Project Status

As of May 2, 2014, more than 16,000 human and avian isolates have been completely sequenced.

Viral Samples Being Sequenced

Additional sample and collaborator information available at J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI)

Influenza Research Database

The Influenza Research Database integrates a variety of influenza research data and analysis tools into a single comprehensive site. Examples of publicly available data provided by the database include avian and human surveillance data, genomics, experimental epitope information, data from assays of virulence, transmission, and host range.

NCBI Influenza Virus Resource

Presents data obtained from the Influenza Genome Sequencing Project and GenBank, combined with tools for flu sequence analysis and annotation. In addition, it provides links to other resources that contain flu sequences, publications and general information about flu viruses.
