Complete Genome Sequences of New Emerging Newcastle Disease Virus Strains Isolated From China

Genome Announc. 2013 Jan;1(1):e00129-12. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00129-12. Epub 2013 Feb 21.


Five Newcastle disease virus strains isolated from geese were classified into a new genotype, designated genotype XII. The complete genome sequences of two strains indicated that these viruses were distinct from viruses of genotype VII. More investigations need to be conducted for us to understand the origin of these new strains.
