Sequences comprising the whole genome were submitted to GISAID (Appendix 2 Table 1).
Among the first 3 human H7N9 sequences available in the GISAID, there are some variations in the globular head region of the HA.
The phylogeny is based on 80 full-length open-reading frames downloaded from the GISAID EpiFlu database (, with signal peptide coding regions and stop codons removed, yielding products of 1,923 nt.
Scientists who protested that H5N1 sequences were not being made freely available set up the GISAID system in 2006.

The genomic data are analyzed and submitted to public databases (GenBank or GISAID EpiFlu).
Of the 265 H5N2 sequences analyzed, we retrieved the 16 viruses from Canada from the GISAID EpiFlu database ( and sequenced the 249 viruses from the United States.
CDC analysis of 74 hemagglutinin (HA) gene sequences from A(H7N9) virus samples collected from infected persons or live bird market environments during the fifth epidemic, which are available in the Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data (GISAID) database (4,5), indicates that A(H7N9) viruses have diverged into two distinct genetic lineages.
