Hello Guenter,

In short, yes we are!

I am the person responsible for the influenza component of the  
BioHealthBase Bioinformatic Resource Center (BRC). We are a free  
integrated bioinformatics resource supporting influenza researchers.  
We are currently working on including the crucial improvements to  
GenBank sequence curation that you refer to. We also include a number  
of other data types including curated and predicted epitopes and  
polymorphism analysis.

We are always on the look out for additional high quality data to  
incorporate into the system. I would like to hear any ideas you have.

Our website is http://www.BioHealthBase.org

Please contact me at richard.squires at utsouthwestern.edu with  
questions and comments.

Thanks for the interest!

Burke Squires
