Complete genome sequences of 11 Newcastle disease virus isolates of sub-genotype VII.2 from Indonesia. Microbiology Resource Announcements. 09(5):e01519-19. https://doi.org/10.1128/MRA.01519-19.
Interpretive Summary: Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is a deadly disease of poultry that is commonly found in Mexico, Central America, South America, Africa, and Asia. Some strains are more virulent than other strains, and it has become common to sequence NDV isolates as a way to characterize them. In an effort to characterize viruses from Indonesia, sequence analysis was performed on the complete genome of viruses. In this study, we report the complete genomes of 11 virulent NDVs of the sub-genotype VII.2 isolated from vaccinated chickens in Indonesia. The use of sequence information is valuable as it provides evidence that virulent strains were circulating among vaccinated flocks in three different provinces of Indonesia in 2013-2014. This type of information helps prepare the United States for future potential outbreaks.
Technical Abstract: We report the complete genome sequences of 11 virulent Newcastle disease viruses. The isolates were obtained from vaccinated broiler and layer chickens in three different provinces of Indonesia in 2013 and 2014. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that all isolates belong to subgenotype VII.2 in the class II cluster.
