EucoHIV is an independent self-constituted study group aiming at increasing scientific knowledge on HIV coreceptor usage and its clinical significance, including an appropriate use of coreceptor antagonists.

EucoHIV has been funded by an unrestricted educational grant by ViiV Healthcare in 2011.

EuResist Network coordinates and financially administrates the project and  collects the data required for EucoHIV into a database developed as an extension of the EuResist Integrated Database (EIDB).

The PhyloGeoTool realised by the REGA group on the Euresist Integrated DB is available online.

It allows you to phylogeographycally explore the EIDB and to place on its phylogenetic tree your aminoacid sequence.
