Global Initiative on Sharing all Influenza Data

GISAID EpiFlu™ (www.gisaid.org) is the world’s most comprehensive publicly accessible database for Influenza sequence data. The database contains genome sequences of all Influenza types from outbreaks and surveillance studies worldwide. The technical hosting of the database is realized by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE). The Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut performs the scientific plausibility check.
