Genome Sequence of Classical Swine Fever Virus NIVEDI-165, Subtype 1.1, a Field Virus Strain Isolated from the Southern Part of India

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 May 23;8(21):e00295-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00295-19.


The whole-genome sequence of an Indian field isolate of classical swine fever virus, NIVEDI-165, was found to be subtype 1.1, and it showed 89 to 99% amino acid identity and 84 to 99% nucleotide identity with four and five Indian classical swine fever virus (CSFV) isolates, respectively. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on a full-genome sequence of CSFV from South India.
