The aim of this initiative is to develop a web-accessible
and quality-controlled nucleotide database for the WHO Measles Laboratory Network. This database is used as a tool to track measles sequence diversity and monitor elimination of virus strains.
This database currently (Wed, 12 Mar 2014 17:03:12 +0000
sample records and
for more details on the current data.
The quality of all submitted sequences is checked before depositing
in the database.
We also provide tools:
To search any combination of fields in the MeaNS database,
To find identical or similar Measles sequences
To genotype Measles strains (based on Measles N genes)
To access the data and to use the analytical tools, you are required to
