Swine Flu Resources

Anyone interested in bioinformatics can now analyze genetic sequences from swine flu isolates and make new discoveries and own conclusions:

The swine influenza A (H1N1) virus is is an RNA virus coding for 8 genes. The sequences of these genes from strains isolated in Texas, California, New York and Kansas can be downloaded from GenBank:

Another collections of sequences with bioinformatics tools can be found at http://www.flugenome.org, but this resource is not updated with the current data and can't be used for genotyping of the latest sequences.
