HIV sequence database


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.
