Molecular characterization of genome sequences of beak and feather disease virus from the Australian twenty-eight parrot (Barnardius zonarius semitorquatus) Academic Article uri icon


  • Three complete genomes of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) were recovered from wild twenty-eight parrots (Polytelis anthopeplus monarchoides). The genomes consisted of 1,996 bp with 1,934 identical sites and a typically content stem-loop structure between ORF1 and ORF2. This is the first report of BFDV infection as well as the complete genome sequences for this host species globally.
