HIV-1 Sequence Quality Analysis Tool

This tool is designed to use determine the quality of a specific HIV sequence. The sequence is analyzed for contamination using BLAST with both public (GenBank) and personal (unpublished sequences) sequence databases. Sequence translational problems (such as frame shift and stop codons mutations) are identified using complete genome and the proteome of the HIV-1 reference sequence HXB2.

Test contamination?

A) Public HIV-1 GenBank Yes No.
Note: Blasting complete GenBank  199,106 sequences (Oct 2007) takes time and it is only useful for testing contamination of non-published sequences.

B) BLAST your private sequences for intra laboratory contamination.
