Sequencing and Analysis of Complete Sequence of Budgerigar Fledgling Disease Virus Isolated from China
Abstract: The genome of BFDV strain HBYM02 isolated from Hubei province was sequenced and analyzed. The sequence suggested BFDV isolated from different hosts belonged to one genotype. A phylogenetic tree based on the genomic nucleotide sequences of seven isolates was constructed. This tree showed two main branches. Taking into account of the relation of the hosts, the tree suggested BFDV formed a host-specific evolution, and it was impossible to delineate a geographically based evolution.
