DNA code sites needed

Post by cwarn23 » Sun Aug 22, 2010 9:08 am

Hi, I have been searching the web the past couple of days for a quick reference to different well known viruses with a link to each of their genetic dna code. Unfortunately I haven't found such a site but does anybody know if such a site exists? I have found the below wikipedia page and a genetic base linked below that but what I need is like an index for that genetic base instead of a search box.
So is there an index to that site (second link) or does anybody know of a more useful site because there is so much clicking and browsing to get the hundreds of dna strands I want.
You may ask why do I want the dna strand of every well known virus - that is because I am planning to decode dna and make software that can generate the formula for vaccines based on dna input.

I recommend starting to learn working with biological databases. Some excellent info can be accessed for free here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books
including quite a few on the subject of using the NCBI databases. May I suggest that you start from here:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bookshelf/br.fcgi?book=handbook

what you need is probably what can be obtained in the genome section, list of viruses :
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/gen ... me=Viruses

And good luck with your goal, however unlikely it probably is.

well, the virus probably uses the same code as it host, otherwise it would not work ;) So, if you're looking to vertebrate pathogens, then the standard code should be OK.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
