Hepatitis B virus (HBV) genomic mutations affect viral replication, disease progression, and diagnostic and vaccination efficiency. There is limited information regarding characterization and mutational analysis of HBV isolated in Bangladesh. Here, we report the complete nucleotide sequence of a precore-defective HBV genotype D2 strain isolated in Bangladesh.


Phylogenetic tree analysis of HBV_BAU1 (GenBank accession no. MN839643). The full-genome sequences of different HBV strains were extracted from GenBank. The full-genome sequences were aligned and the phylogenetic tree was constructed using CLC Sequence Viewer version 6.8.1. The neighbor-joining algorithm was used with 1,000 replicates of bootstrap analysis to build the tree.
