Influenza viruses present formidable scientific and public health challenges and causes moderate to severe epidemics annually and catastrophic pandemics sporadically. Identifying genetic changes to the viral genome and subsequently determining corresponding genotypes are crucial steps in influenza surveillance.

In collaboration with Dr. R. Donis and his team at CDC, we developed a computation genotyping system to improve influenza surveillance through early detection of influenza A viral genotypes. With our flugenome tools, you can search the lineage and genotype databases and predict evolutionary origin of viral sequences.
