Abstract/Summary

Nowadays, there is a lot of information about viruses such as their behaviour and their interactions with each having its own properties such as chemical activators and conditions. With that, the information would eventually become unorganized which would result to the data not being optimally used. Another problem is that virologists could still be exposed to the effects of the virus specimens, which is dangerous. By storing data in the database, Virus-Host Interaction Lexicon was able to organize virus data by experiments. It also allows searching experiments to allow the researchers to acquire the needed data for their experiments, thus resulting in optimal data usage. Data includes experiment images. For better image quality, VirhoLex included an image enhancing tool. VirhoLex also allows simulation of remaining virus population given the virus and the inhibitors applied.
