First Complete Genome Sequences of Zika Virus Isolated from Febrile Patient Sera in Ecuador

Genome Announc. 2017 Feb 23;5(8):e01673-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01673-16.


Here, we present the complete genome sequences of two Zika virus (ZIKV) strains, EcEs062_16 and EcEs089_16, isolated from the sera of febrile patients in Esmeraldas City, in the northern coastal province of Esmeraldas, Ecuador, in April 2016. These are the first complete ZIKV genomes to be reported from Ecuador.
