Interpretive Summary: Newcastle Disease is caused by an avian paramyxovirus (APMV) of serotype 1. However chickens and other poultry species are often infected by other APMVs that may cause minor respiratory problems or go unnoticed. It is important to be able to recognize infections of poultry with all existing APMVs and here we provide the complete genomic information of a recently discovered group named APMV10.

Technical Abstract: The first complete genome sequences of four Avian paramyxovirus serotype 10 (APMV-10) isolates are described here. The viruses were isolated from Rockhopper Penguins sampled in 2007 on the Falkland Islands. All four genomes are 15,456 nucleotides in length and phylogenetic analyses show them to be closely related.
