I am seeking virological databases focussing on:

  • vaccines
  • antibody interactions
  • host receptors.

Preferably the data base will host multiple strains/samples of a given virus samples.

Any assistance would be welcome.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi MniNi, could you tell us what viruses you are interested in? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Anything that is parse-able data, has documented binding site or vaccine, best both. I need real data in some data analysis I want to try on, with sequential substituted correlation. (Having substituents on certain shapes of chain, and correlating differences to differences in those substituents) $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Given "any virus will do", the viruses that are "head and shoulders" above the rest in terms of volumes of data are HIV and influenza.

The influenza database is here

The influenza viral spike that attaches to the cell receptor is the HA protein – hemagglutinin. The cell receptor is sialic acid – a small sugar that is attached to many different proteins on the cell surface. You can of course simply search PDB for HA or else Genbank.

  • $\begingroup$ Ouch, I was abuncted by the goverment again, so I think somebody took the best from influenza vaccine technique and applied it to corona like I wanted. $\endgroup$
