Influenza Research Database
What is it?
The Influenza Research Database (IRD; www.fludb.org) is a publicly available, NIAID-sponsored one-stop database and analysis resource that supports influenza research. IRD integrates data from public repositories, direct submissions, and internal curation and analysis pipelines, and provides a suite of bioinformatics analysis and visualization tools to expedite influenza virus research.
What can you do?
- Search, analyze, and visualize influenza virus data from a single integrated database
- Study evolution of influenza virus
- Conduct comparative genomic studies
- Predict new targets for diagnostics, prophylactics, vaccines, and therapeutics
