Hi, I'd like to second the idea of a specific virology archive. Not only
as has just been suggested but also a database of viral sequences grouped
according to family/genus/species etc. something separate from GenBank/EMBL
tho' obviously getting data from them. I think a more dedicated database is
needed of viral sequences along the lines of Gerry Myers HIV ay Los Alamos,
or the several organism databases.

Also, a database of viral taxomony - today I needed to know how many 
rhinoviruses have been described/serologically typed. where can I go
for up to date information? There is nothing on-line I know of, surely
we (virologists) can do something more recent than the last Intervirology
taxonomy issue?
