In brief: Flu virus genes

The hemaglutinin and neuraminidase genes are in influenza viruses.
They code for proteins that are found on the surface of the flu virus. The viruses are named according to which type of hemaglutinin and neuraminidase proteins are on their surfaces (for example: h1n1 or h7n9).
