Application Note: Genetic characterization of highly pathogenic H5N1
5 October 2007

The control of animal diseases that might pose threat to public health such as highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), require the use of a broad range of tools both from the competent authorities and the laboratories involved.

This case study shows how the CLC Combined Workbench has been used in Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza research. The Workbench has been used to assemble sequencing data, search databases, and create alignments and phylogenetic trees. Based on full-length sequencing, the relationships with other variants of H5N1 have been analyzed.
