Abstract:
We report here the complete genome of a Dezidougou virus (DEZV) isolated from a passaged culture of the Zika virus strain DAK AR 41524. The consensus DEZV sequence we recovered shows 99% nucleotide similarity using BLASTN to a previously reported DEZV (accession no. JQ675604.1). The current sequence has additional repeat regions as well as a deleted repeat region, which we confirmed by Sanger sequencing, that were not present in the originally published sequence, JQ675604.1.
