STAR is a distance based tool for rapid and accurate determination of HIV-1 and HBV subtype according to an underlying statistical model.

STAR assigns HIV-1 subtypes using either nucleotide or protein sequences of the protease (PR) and reverse transcriptase (RT) genes, and HBV subtypes using nucleotide sequences of any genomic region. Click here for information on the subtyping process

Submit Pol, surface coding region or entire genome sequence.

Choose dataset:              HIV Hepatitis B
Choose Sequence type:   Nucleotide Amino acid

Paste sequences in FASTA format (Example sequence) in the box below.

Or upload a file containing maximum 500 sequences.


STAR is developed and maintained by Richard E. Myers and Arshad Khan
