Genome Announcements Collection 2: Tombunodavirus UC1; Picalivirus D; Laverivirus UC1
Alexander L. Greninger, Joseph L. DeRisiGenome Announcements, 2015Abstract:
1) We report here the draft genome sequence of tombunodavirus UC1 assembled from metagenomic sequencing of organisms in
San Francisco wastewater. This virus shares hallmarks of members of the Tombusviridae and the nodavirus-like Plasmopara
halstedii and Sclerophthora macrospora viruses.
2)We report here the draft genome sequence of picalivirus D, a member of picalivirus, a picorna-like superfamily, and likely member
of the order Picornavirales, assembled from metagenomic sequencing of organisms in San Francisco wastewater. This virus
likely constitutes a novel genus within the picalivirus family.
We report the draft genome sequence of Laverivirus UC1, assembled from San Francisco wastewater. This dicistronic RNA virus
bears some similarity to dicistroviruses; however, it appears to have a unique genome organization relative to all other known
