Mammalian Adaptation of an Avian Influenza A Virus Involves Stepwise Changes in NS1

J Virol
PMCID: 5809720
PMID: 29237841
DOI: 10.1128/JVI.01875-17
call_split See protocol

[…] We collected 170 EIV H3N8 NS sequences from the NCBI Influenza Virus Resource database (the sequences are available upon request). We also included four EIV H3N8 NS sequences that we sequenced for this study (accession numbers MF182460, MF182451, M […]


Genome wide evolutionary dynamics of influenza B viruses on a global scale

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5790164
PMID: 29284042
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006749

[…] All available influenza B virus gene segment sequences, excluding artificial recombinant and laboratory-generated variants, were downloaded from the NCBI Influenza Virus Resource (IVR) [] and GISAID ( repositories on 28 August 2015. Acknowledgement of the sources of the GISAID sequences is given in and accession numbers of GenBa […]


Genetic Characteristic and Global Transmission of Influenza A H9N2 Virus

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5744263
PMID: 29312274
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02611

[…] All hemagglutinin (HA) gene and neuraminidase (NA) sequences of H9N2 viruses in this research were downloaded from NCBI Influenza Virus Resource (Bao et al., ). To reduce the number of sequences, sequences <95% full length were removed, and the resulting sequences were clustered using CD-HIT v4.6 (Li et al., ) wit […]


Influenza virus segment 5 (+)RNA secondary structure and new targets for antiviral strategies

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5678188
PMID: 29118447
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15317-5

[…] All available influenza A strains were downloaded from the NCBI influenza virus resource, only non-redundant, full-length sequences were taken. Genome alignment of influenza sequences was performed using MAFFT using the FFT-NS-1 fast alignment approach. Base […]


Adaptive evolution during the establishment of European avian‐like H1N1 influenza A virus in swine

Evol Appl
PMCID: 5891058
PMID: 29636804
DOI: 10.1111/eva.12536
call_split See protocol

[…] sequences of all H1NX (for HA), HXN1 (for NA) and HXNX (for all internal gene segments) isolated from avian and swine hosts before the year 2000 and their associated metadata were downloaded from the NCBI Influenza Virus Resource ( Sequence lengths of <500 bp were excluded from the analysis. For each gene segment, the large data sets were aligned u […]


Phylogenetic characterisation of circulating, clinical influenza isolates from Bali, Indonesia: preliminary report from the BaliMEI project

BMC Infect Dis
PMCID: 5568394
PMID: 28830452
DOI: 10.1186/s12879-017-2684-2
call_split See protocol

[…] The influenza virus sequences were combined with existing sequences retrieved from the NCBI Influenza Virus Resource [] that represented the range of genetic diversity worldwide during the same period (Additional file ). Each genome segment was aligned separately using the MUSCLE aligne […]
