Defines and classifies viral protein modularity. VaZyMolO enables the handling of viral sequences at the protein level in order to define their modularity. It organizes information about modularity on viral open reading frames from complete genome sequences derived from GenBank and RefSeq. Its annotations are based on a stringent manual checking, specially concerning the boundaries of the modules, and it benefits from virologists’ knowledge.
