The COMET tool rapidly classifies HIV-1 nucleotide sequences into subtypes. You can submit your sequences either by pasting them in the form (b) or uploading them (a).
|1.0||smaller HIV-1 recombination detection window (should detect more URF), CRF additions to the training set||2014-03-26|
|0.5||new HIV-1 thresholds, should slightly improve the results||2012-06-11|
|0.3||additional support for CRF 44_BF - 49_cpx for HIV-1||2011-12-20|
(a) upload the sequences in fasta format:
(b) paste the sequences in fasta format (try out example):
The submitted sequences are deleted as soon the results have been generated.
