Influenza A Virus Genome Project

Goals
This project aims to dramatically improve the availability of influenza genomic sequence in the public domain. We will sequence the complete genomes of a large collection of human influenza A isolates, as well as a select number of avian and other non-human influenza strains. The strains will be chosen to represent a wide geographical and chronological survey of the influenza virus. All data will be released immediately to the public domain.
