KISED(Korea Influenza Sequence & Epitope Database), a web based interface, provides users with genetic information about influenza viruses by
- establishing influenza genome sequences.
- comparing user's sequences with those of vaccine strains.
- analyzing drug resistance mutation in user's sequences.
- providing information about epitope.
The genomic sequences of KISED are mostly obtained from the data of seasonal influenza viruses isolated in South Korea and NCBI Influenza Virus Sequence Database.
The data are produced by two methods
- obtained from KINRESS(Korea Influenza and Respiratory Viruses Surveillance System) reports 17 provincial Institute of Health & Environment.
- deposited by researchers through the Influenza Sequence Service Program of KCDC to support studies relevant to influenza virus research.
KISED also provides a set of user friendly interface to retrieve influenza virus genetic information, such as Search and Analysis.
KISED is managed by the Division of Influenza Virus, Center for Infectious Diseases, Korea National Institute of Health, Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
