Summary
Abstract: [From ISD home page: "http://www.flu.lanl.gov/"]

The Influenza Sequence Database (ISD) contains all published influenza viral
sequences, which have been curated by domain experts to ensure high standards
of accuracy and completeness. ISD tools for management of influenza viral
sequences and study of the molecular evolution of the influenza virus are
designed to expedite the typical tasks of molecular epidemiology.

Subscriptions to the ISD are required for full access to tools; information on
the purchase of subscriptions can be obtained by emailing flu@lanl.gov.
