Genome Sequence of a Novel Picorna-Like RNA Virus from Feces of the Antarctic Fur Seal (Arctocephalus gazella)

Genome Announc. 2017 Sep 7;5(36):e01001-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01001-17.


A novel RNA virus was detected in a fecal sample collected from the Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella) in King George Island, Antarctica. The almost-complete genome sequence reveals two open reading frames and a dicistrovirus-like gene order.
