Whole-genome sequence of a beak and feather disease virus isolate from a fledgling red-capped parrot (Purpureicephalus spurius) Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The complete genome sequence of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) from a fledgling red-capped parrot ( Purpureicephalus spurius ) was assembled and 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 a complete genome sequence for this novel host.
