Online HCV Database Available

August 18, 2005

About 4 million U.S. residents are infected with Hepatitis C virus (HCV). For researchers studying the virus, New Mexico's Los Alamos National Laboratory offers HCV immunology and genome sequence databases online. The latter includes more than 30,000 full and partial genome sequences from worldwide samples. Users can search by viral subtype, geographic location, route of infection or other variables. Tools aid in the creation of evolutionary trees based on sequences and also perform other analyses. The immunology database catalogs viral segments that trigger T cell responses and antibodies that latch onto HCV. For more information, visit the Web site: http://hcv.lanl.gov/content/hcv-db/index.
