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).
|2.4||Additional support up to 118_BC, addition of subtypes not present before for HIV-1||2022-07-04|
|2.3||Additional support for CRF 79_0107 - 96_cpx for HIV-1||2018-08-23|
|2.2||Additional support for CRF 50_A1D - 78_cpx for HIV-1||2016-12-01|
|2.1||Added bootstrap support levels (100 samples per sequence).||2016-09-22|
|2.0||Rewritten COMET in GO (Uses much less memory, faster; improved accuracy slightly).||2016-09-18|
|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|
Maximum size of each sequence (excluding fasta) 20000 characters
(a) upload the sequences in fasta format (you can compress the file with gzip, max. 8Mo (50MB)):
(b) paste the sequences in fasta format (try out example):
The submitted sequences are deleted as soon the results have been generated.
