Complete Genome Sequence of a Virulent Newcastle Disease Virus Strain Isolated From a Clinically Healthy Duck (Anas Platyrhynchos Domesticus) in Pakistan

Genome Announc. 2016 Jul 28;4(4):e00730-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00730-16.


Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a virulent Newcastle disease virus (vNDV) strain, duck/Pakistan/Lahore/AW-123/2015, isolated from apparently healthy laying ducks (Anas platyrhynchos domesticus) from the province of Punjab, Pakistan. The virus has a genome length of 15,192 nucleotides and is classified as member of subgenotype VIIi, class II.
