Provides information about specific biodefense and public health pathogens: Influenza virus, Francisella tularensis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Microsporidia species and ricin toxin. BioHealthBase is a repository built upon a comprehensive foundation of gene, protein structure and function data from numerous external sources. The database also allows to construct phylogenetic trees based on sequence relationships and define functional sequence features in influenza proteins, available for display in both genome browser and 3D protein structure visualization module.
