Looking to catch a virus—or at least come down with its genome sequence. Try the new Viral Genomes home page from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which offers nearly 1200 “reference sequences,” complete and annotated genomes for more than 900 plant, animal, bacterial, and human viruses. They run the gamut from familiar killers such as HIV and the yellow fever virus to obscure pathogens such as the virus that causes Aleutian mink disease.
