Korea Influenza Sequence & Epitope Database (KISED)
KISED (Korea Influenza Sequence & Epitope Database), a web based interface, provides users with genetic information about influenza viruses by establishing influenza genome sequences, comparing user's sequences with those of vaccine strains, analyzing drug resistance mutation in user's sequences and providing information about epitope. The objective of KISED is to develop influenza virus resources and strengthen the platform of influenza research. The genomic sequences of KISED are mostly obtained from the data of seasonal influenza viruses isolated in South Korea and NCBI Influenza Virus Sequence Database. The data are produced by two methods obtained from KINRESS (Korea Influenza and Respiratory Viruses Surveillance System) reports of 17 provincial Institute of Health & Environment and deposited by researchers through the Influenza Sequence Service Program of KCDC to support studies relevant to influenza virus research. KISED provides genetic information of 295,333 influenza A viruses, 31,672 influenza B viruses as well as a set of user friendly interface to retrieve influenza virus genetic information, such as Search and Analysis. The KISED provides an access for professions and researchers to share the information of influenza virus research fields. It will become one of the international influenza database infra structure in the near future. KISED is managed by the Division of Influenza Virus, Center for Infectious Diseases, National Research Institute of Health, Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. KCDC has been improving KISED homepage to provide researchers with better service. New version of KISED homepage will be available at the end of April, 2015 (Figure 16).
