HIV Databases HIV Databases home HIV Databases home
The HIV databases contain data on HIV genetic sequences, immunological epitopes, drug resistance-associated mutations, and vaccine trials. The website also gives access to a large number of tools that can be used to analyze these data. This project is funded by the Division of AIDS of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

New QuickAlign Options
QuickAlign will align epitopes, functional domains, primers, binding sites, or any region of interest, to the HIV Sequence Database pre-built genome or protein alignments, or to your own alignment. Conventional QuickAlign works as it did previously. Input a sequence, and see that sequence aligned to any alignment. If several sequences are submitted together, each has its own results. The new Discontinuous QuickAlign accepts coordinate positions as input, and concatenates multiple inputs into a single spliced alignment. New options for both versions allow you to highlight potential N-linked glycosylation sites and control the appearance of the sequence logos included in the summarized results. 17 September 2014

Recombinant HIV-1 Drawing Tool
The Recombinant HIV-1 Drawing Tool has a new feature that allows users to select custom colors. This tool makes a color-coded figure to depict the subtype breakpoints for any HIV-1 recombinant or CRF. 26 August 2014

Sequence Compendium Subscriptions
The 2014 HIV Sequence Compendium will be printed and shipped soon. This year is probably the last time the compendium will be printed and mailed. If you need to subscribe, unsubscribe, or change your mailing address, please visit our Subscription page. 25 August 2014
