Complete Genome Sequence of a Novel Human Gammapapillomavirus Isolated from Skin

Genome Announc. 2017 Aug 24;5(34):e00833-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00833-17.


A novel human papillomavirus (HPV ICB1) was fully characterized from a skin swab by using a sensitive degenerate PCR protocol combined with next-generation sequencing. The L1 open reading frame of HPV ICB1 shares 70.54% nucleotide homology with its closest relative, HPV164, and thus constitutes a novel human gammapapillomavirus.
