Genome Sequences of Two Pseudorabies Virus Strains Isolated in Greece

Genome Announc. 2016 Jan 21;4(1):e01624-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01624-15.


Pseudorabies virus (species Suid herpesvirus 1) belongs to the genus Varicellovirus, subfamily Alphaherpesvirinae, family Herpesviridae, and is the causative agent of an acute and frequently fatal disease that affects mainly pigs. Here, we report the genome sequences of two strains of this virus isolated in Greece in 2010.
