Abstract

The complete genome sequence of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) from a purple crowned lorikeet (Glossopsitta porphyrocephala) was characterized. The genome consists of 2,010 nucleotides and encodes replicase-associated protein and capsid protein. This is the first evidence of BFDV infectivity and complete genome sequence for this novel host.
