Long-read sequencing reveals a GC pressure during the evolution of porcine endogenous retrovirus.

Authors: Szucs, Attila and Moldován, Norbert and Tombácz, Dóra and Csabai, Zsolt and Snyder, Michael and Boldogkoi, Zsolt

Here, we present the complete genome sequence of a porcine endogenous retrovirus determined by Pacific Biosciences sequencing. A comparison of the genome of this isolate with those of other strains revealed the operation of a mechanism resulting in the selective accumulation of G and C bases in the viral DNA.
