Tip of the Week: ViralZone at ExPASy

viralzone_tip For today’s tip I am going to continue with the theme I started yesterday – obtaining swine flu information. There are many wonderful viral resources that are publicly available. I  linked to NCBI’s Influenza Virus Resource in yesterdays post, and you can watch past tips that Trey has done tips on the Viral Bioinformatics Resource Center (VBRC) here and here. But for todays tip I’ve like to introduce you to the ViralZone, which is available from the ExPASy Proteomics Server.  ViralZone is  created by the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) and provides a really clear, concise introduction to a virus as well as links to any variety of detailed information.
