Virus Pathogen Resource
What is it?
Virus Pathogen Resource (ViPR) is a publicly available, NIAID-sponsored one-stop database and analysis resource that supports the research of viral pathogens in the NIAID Category A-C Priority Pathogen lists and those causing (re)emerging infectious diseases. ViPR 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 virology research.
What can you do?
- Search, analyze, and visualize virus data from a single integrated database
- Study evolution of pathogenic viruses
- Conduct comparative genomic studies
- Predict new targets for diagnostics, prophylactics, vaccines, and therapeutics
