Full genome sequencing of recombinant strains of canine hepatitis
This pathobiology project involves the sequencing of the entire genome of newly isolated infectious canine hepatitis (ICH) viruses.
A new ICH virus has isolated from few infected dogs, the preliminary data showed a recombination in one of the genes. Full genome sequencing will be performed to find the genomic structure of the virus.
Key methodology: Full genome sequencing and genomic analysis for the isolated viruses.
