 STD Sequence Databases  

These specialized databases are an expansion of the human papillomavirus project funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), within the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland. The scope of this project includes both compilation and analysis of molecular sequence information pertaining to sexually transmitted bacteria and viruses. Dynamic graphics and extended analyses are available for all organisms. Annotation is accomplished by a combination of automation and hand review of each record. Subject area experts on our STD Database Team provided curation and valuable advice for many aspects of this project.

This database and analysis project began in 1998 and was completed in October of 2003. The earliest version focused on recently sequenced genomes of Chlamydia pneumoniae, Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium, Treponema pallidum, Ureaplasma urealyticum, as well as Human Papillomavirus.  Subsquently three herpesviruses, Human Herpesvirus 1 (HSV-1), Human Herpesvirus 2 (HSV-2), Human Herpesvirus 8 (KSHV), and Neisseria gonorrhoeae were added. In 2003 Streptococcus agalactiae, Haemophilus ducreyi, Human Herpesvirus 5 (HCMV) and Pseudorabies virus (PRV) completed the collection.

We welcome additional information and references from the STD research community and will include them as time permits. There are no plans at this time to include other genomes. We thank the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for its generous support of this project.

 Oral Pathogen Sequence Databases

The Oral Pathogen Sequence Databases are funded by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) within the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda Maryland. The Oral Pathogen Databases have their own URL and are available at: www.oralgen.lanl.gov.
