Complete Genome Sequence of an Ictalurid Herpesvirus 1 Strain Isolated from Blue Catfish (Ictalurus furcatus)

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Apr 11;8(15):e00082-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00082-19.


The complete genome sequence of an alloherpesvirus isolated from blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus) is reported. Genomic analyses revealed that this virus is a distinct strain of ictalurid herpesvirus 1, the first strain of which was isolated previously from a channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus).
