Complete genome sequence of pseudorabies virus reference strain NIA3 using single-molecule real-time sequencing.
Pseudorabies virus (PRV) is the causative agent of Aujeszky’s disease in pigs. PRV strains are also used as model organisms for the study of alphaherpesvirus biology or for neuronal pathway studies. We present here the complete genome of the virulent wild-type PRV reference strain NIA3, determined by single-molecule real-time sequencing. Copyright © 2016 Mathijs et al.
