The Hepatitis E Virus Automated Genotyping Tool: introduction.
This typingtool offers quick typing of hepatitis E virus sequences.
With this tool sequences of any part of the hepatitis E (HEV) genome can be assigned to a HEV genotype. Sequences of other ssRNA viruses are also recognized by the tool and are assigned to their family.
The sequences used as references in this tool originate from: Genbank.
The reference sequences for subtypes have been described by Smith et al, 2016: Proposed reference sequences for hepatitis E virus subtypes..
Additional subtypes are provisonal awaiting formal description.
