Flaviviridae -- Flaviviruses

West Nile Encephalitis

West Nile (WN) virus has emerged in recent years in temperate regions of Europe and North America, presenting a threat to public, equine, and animal health. The most serious manifestation of WN virus infection is fatal encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) in humans and horses, as well as mortality in certain domestic and wild birds.

Herpesviridae -- Herpes Viruses

  • Café Herpé - presented by SmithKline Beecham, this site contains a variety of resources related to genital herpes.
  • Kaposi's Saroma-associated Herpesvirus (KSHV) Information from Columbia University's KSHV Laboratory.
  • VIDA: The Virus Database (VIDA) at University College London organises all available sequences from different families of animal viruses: herpesvirus, poxvirus, papillomavirus, coronavirus and arterivirus. The ORF products are clustered into homologous protein families via an automated procedure that uses the sequence similarity search tool BLAST and the MKDOM program. Conserved regions in the families can be retrieved in the form of multiple alignments. Links exist to a number of databases: Swissprot, EMBL and the structural databases CATH and PDB.
  • University of Washington Virology Research Clinic - The mission of the Virology Research Clinic is to investigate the epidemiology and natural history of Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and to evaluate new therapies and vaccines for HSV. Currently, special areas of interest are prevention of HSV transmission with daily antiviral therapy and the interactions between HSV and HIV.
  • Herpes Fact Sheet - From the Epidemiology and Disease Control Program for the State of Maryland.
  • The Herpes Zone - information for herpes patients, with information on viral life cycle, treatments and living with herpes.
