Molecular characterization of a beak and feather disease virus genome from a purple crowned lorikeet (Glossopsitta porphyrocephala) Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The complete genome sequence of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) from a purple crowned lorikeet ( Glossopsitta porphyrocephala ) was characterized. The genome consists of 2,010 nucleotides and encodes replicase-associated protein and capsid protein. This is the first evidence of BFDV infectivity and complete genome sequence for this novel host.
