Motivation: The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic poses a huge threat to human public health. Viral sequence data plays an important role in the scientific prevention and control of epidemics. A comprehensive virus database will be vital useful for virus data retrieval and deep analysis. To promote sharing of virus data, several virus databases and related analyzing tools have been created. Results: To facilitate virus research and promote the global sharing of virus data, we present here VirusDIP, a one-stop service platform for archive, integration, access, analysis of virus data. It accepts the submission of viral sequence data from all over the world and currently integrates data resources from the National GeneBank Database (CNGBdb), Global initiative on sharing all influenza data (GISAID), and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Moreover, based on the comprehensive data resources, BLAST sequence alignment tool and multi-party security computing tools are deployed for multi-sequence alignment, phylogenetic tree building and global trusted sharing. VirusDIP is gradually establishing cooperation with more databases, and paving the way for the analysis of virus origin and evolution. All public data in VirusDIP are freely available for all researchers worldwide.
