I am seeking a virological database comprising the following information:

  • vaccine.
  • antibody
  • receptor.

Preferably hosting multiple strains/samples of a given virus samples of strain.

Any assistance would be welcome.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi MniNi, could you tell us what viruses you are interested in? $\endgroup$ – Michael Feb 24 at 11:14
  • $\begingroup$ 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) $\endgroup$ – MniNi Feb 24 at 11:17
  • $\begingroup$ Hey ya, note you can edit the question and add more details (as those you wrote in the comment). $\endgroup$ – Kamil S Jaron Feb 24 at 13:17

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.
