We are an international team aiming to enhance global dengue virus genomic surveillance by providing a Lineage System and Sequencing Resources.

About Dengue Lineages

Our dengue virus lineage system splits up the current genotypes into major and minor lineages to provide additional spatiotemporal resolution and a common language to discuss important genomic diversity. A full description of the lineage system can be found here.

Lineage system using DENV-3 fgigure
Example of the lineage system using DENV-3. The long-hand description “Dengue virus serotype 3, genotype III, lineage C.2” can be abbreviated as “DENV-3III_C.2” (read as: “dengue three-three-C-dot-two”).
