HERVd: the Human Endogenous RetroViruses Database: update

Nucleic Acids Res. 2004 Jan 1;32(Database issue):D50. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkh075.


An elaboration of HERVd (http://herv.img.cas.cz) is being carried out in two directions. One of them is the integration and better classification of families that diverge considerably from typical retroviral genomes. This leads to a more precise identification of members with individual families. The second improvement is better accessibility of the database and connection with human genome annotation.
