GISRS and GISAID -- Influenza virus surveillance

GISAID enables rapid sharing:

  • Comprehensive: Tens of thousands of virus sequences per year
  • Timely: sequences are often available within 4weeks
  • Representative: Isolates from every continent

Nextflu and Nextstrain for real-time analysis:

  • Weekly updated phylodynamic analysis
  • Integration with antigenic data
  • Predictions and projections

FluSurver for structural analysis:

  • Automated prediction of drug resistance, antigenic properties, and pathogenicity
  • directly linked with nextstrain
