The Enterovirus Automated Genotyping Tool: introduction.

This typingtool provides virological labs with an appropriate reference set for molecular typing of materials positive in the enterovirus diagnostic PCR.
The tool uses a regularly updated set of human Picornaviridae genera and enterovirus species and (sero)types, both definite and proposed types.
For the nomenclature and selection of prototype strains in this tool the picornavirus home page has been used. The corresponding sequences have been downloaded from GenBank
