Identify regions of protein/gene with known structural or functional properties Sequence Features (SF)alpha-helical region, host protein binding site, enzyme active site, immune epitopeDetermine the extent of sequence variation for each SF by defining each unique sequence as a Variant Type (VT)High-level, comprehensive grouping of all virus strains by VT membership for each SF independentlyGenotype-phenotype association statistical analysis (virulence, pathogenesis, host range, immune evasion, drug resistance)While phylogenetics reflect evolutionary history of the virus, it is the focused regions in the viral genes/proteins that effect protein expression, structure and/or protein function that are responsible for important virus characteristics

SummaryCompiling list of all known influenza protein sequence features (SFs) in IRDObserved dramatic skewing in NS1 SFVT host distributionsIn some cases, attributable to sampling biasesVT-1 and Avian H5N1 due to Asian sampling in mid-2000'sVT-2 and human due to 2009 pandemic H1N1VT-11 and Other (Environment) in Delaware Bay Performing multivariate statistical analysis to control for confounding variablesIn other cases, attributable to founder effectsVT-13 and -14 and Viet Nam 2003However, in other cases these explanations do not appears to be consistent with the data, suggesting that these may indeed be NS1-mediated host range restrictionsEquine VT-10 lineageAvian VT-4 lineage (B allele/group)Human VT-8 lineageHuman VT-15 lineageNuclear export vs linkage disequilibrium?63U.T.
