Abstract

Summary:

ViPTree is a web server provided through GenomeNet to generate viral proteomic trees for classification of viruses based on genome-wide similarities. Users can upload viral genomes sequenced either by genomics or metagenomics. ViPTree generates proteomic trees for the uploaded genomes together with flexibly selected reference viral genomes. ViPTree also serves as a platform to visually investigate genomic alignments and automatically annotated gene functions for the uploaded viral genomes, thus providing virus researchers the first choice for classifying and understanding newly sequenced viral genomes.

Availability and Implementation:

ViPTree is freely available at: http://www.genome.jp/viptree .
