Characterization of Beak and Feather Disease Virus Genomes from Wild Musk Lorikeets ( Glossopsitta concinna ) Academic Article uri icon


  • Three complete genomes of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) were recovered from wild musk lorikeets (Glossopsitta concinna). The genomes consisted of 2,008 to 2,010┬ánucleotides (nt) and encode two major proteins transcribing in opposing directions. This is the first report of BFDV complete genome sequences obtained from this host species.
