This is DVApred, Drug-virus association prediction server, a free, open source tool designed to assist clinicians for predicting anti-virals against viruses. Based on advanced machine learning methodologies, the tool can predict drug-virus associations based on the similarities between RNA / DNA structure of the viruses, the chemical structure of the drugs and the historical information about the efficacy of the drugs on different viruses


This web server provides the following:
1. Top-5 drugs predicted for a virus, given its complete genome
2. A normalized score depicting the overall efficacy of the drug against the virus given a drug and a virus

1. Drug prediction

Choose algorithm:

If chosen virus name is "Other", Upload complete genome of virus in "fasta" format.

(NOTE: Prediction after file upload may take a minute. Please do not refresh)

2. Association prediction
