The COMET tool rapidly classifies HCV nucleotide sequences into subtypes. You can submit your sequences either by pasting them in the form (b) or uploading them (a).
|1.1||Re-added bootstrap support levels (100 samples per sequence).||2016-09-22|
|1.0||Rewritten COMET in GO (Uses much less memory, faster; improved accuracy slightly).||2016-09-18|
|0.2||new training set based on ICTV HCV Reference Sequence Alignment (2013-09-11)||2013-09-18|
|0.1||HCV subtyping & bootstrap values to assess quality of prediction||2012-03-21|
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.
