A computer software product to predict the strains of some single stranded RNA viruses from their limited sequence data. The product successfully demonstrates a way to distinguish among very closely related virus strains of two important ssRNA virus families.
The software will reduce both time and costs in identifying closely related ssRNA viruses from their sequences by substantially reducing the throughput time.
Public and private research laboratories and centers involved in detection, diagnostics and analysis of virus outbreaks and clinical studies. Commercial applications of the product include equipment and kits that accurately identify bio-terror related viruses.
