Characterization of the whole-genome sequence of a beak and feather disease virus isolate from a Mallee ringneck parrot (Barnardius zonarius barnardi) Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The complete genome sequence of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) from a wild Australian Mallee ringneck parrot (Barnardius zonarius barnardi) was characterized. The genome consists of 1,995 nucleotides and encodes two major proteins in opposing directions. This is the first evidence of BFDV infectivity and the first complete genome sequence for this novel host.
