  1. VirGen (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Curated database for complete viral genome sequences
    Resource Category : Databases -> Genomic Databases (Non-Human) -> Viral Genome Databases

    Brief Description : VirGen is a comprehensive viral genome resource that has been developed with the objective of serving as an annotated and curated database comprising complete genome sequences of viruses, value-added derived data and data mining tools (Kulkarni-Kale et al., 2004). A well-annotated genome record, in consistency with ICTV is identified as a 'representative entry' for every viral species. The representative entries are then used for genome annotation using sequence-based Bioinformatics approaches. The genomic data is also curated to identify 'alternate names' of viral proteins. VirGen archives the results of comparisons of genomes, proteomes and individual proteins within and between viral species. It is the first resource to provide phylogenetic trees of viral species computed using whole-genome sequence data. The module of predicted B-cell antigenic determinants in VirGen is an attempt to link the genome to its vaccinome. Comparative genome analysis data facilitate the study of genome organization and evolution of viruses, which would have implications in applied research to identify candidates for the design of vaccines and antiviral drugs. VirGen is a relational database and is available at http://bioinfo.ernet.in/virgen/virgen.html.
