Recovery of Five Complete Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 Genome Sequences from the 2015 Influenza Outbreak in India by Metagenomic Sequencing

Genome Announc. 2018 Jun 28;6(26):e00511-18. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00511-18.


Five complete (H1N1)pdm09 viral sequences were recovered from hospitalized individuals during the 2015 influenza outbreak by metagenomic sequencing. Four of the genomes are from oropharyngeal swabs, and one is from an isolate. All five sequences belong to an emerging 6B clade. Studying them further is critical for outbreak preparedness.
