Does anyone know of a website with the list of different types of Human papilloma virus (HPV)?

I’m looking for a site with a list of different types of human papillomavirus (HPV). I did not find much information about human papillomavirus (HPV), but I can not find a list of different types of viruses.

Genital Warts:
Genital warts (also known as venereal warts) are caused by a virus, the human papillomavirus (HPV).
Warts are found on or around the penis, anus or vagina.
They are small lumps which have an irregular cauliflower-like surface.
The colour and shape vary depending on their location. Sometimes the warts cause irritation and itching.
Genital warts are a serious health concern as certain types of HPV have been associated with cervical cancer.
However, most women infected with genital warts do not have the strains of HPV that give rise to cervical cancer.
Genital warts often disappear even without treatment. However, there are a range of drug treatments.
Small warts can also be removed by freezing, burning or using laser treatment.
Occasionally, surgery is used to remove larger warts.
Please see the webpages for more details on Genital wart and Human papilloma virus.

I’ve found a few different sites. The first one I really like. You’ll have to do a little reading but it’s really good.
