Enables visualization and investigation of viral sequences. IMG/VR allows users to explore associated metadata to decipher biogeographical and habitat distribution patterns of viral species. It provides functionalities for confronting researchers’ sequences against IMG/VR’s data. This platform permits the study of distribution patterns of similar viral sequences across the globe, percent of known and unknown genes per sequence, and information regarding viral taxonomy and putative viral-host(s).
