New Specialized Database Added to NCBI Zika Virus Resource Page

Posted by on March 31st, 2016 Posted in: Data, NCBI, Public Health, Rare Diseases


The NCBI Zika virus resource page has been updated with a specialized database. This database uses pipelines to annotate genes, proteins and mature peptides, and standardize sample metadata. Using this database, you can:

  • Find sequences easily using standardized annotations and normalized metadata terms.
  • Construct alignments and phylogenetic trees using a suite of online tools.
  • Download sequences and metadata in a variety of formats and create customized titles/description lines (deflines) for FASTA file downloads.

The NCBI Zika virus resource, part of the Virus Variation family of NCBI resources, provides users with a unique, metadata-driven search interface that leverages advanced data management pipelines.
