[Study of the structure-function organization of the variola virus genome. IV. Sequencing and analysis of the nucleotide sequence of the right terminus of the India-1967 strain genome].


Sequencing and computer analysis of the variola major virus strain India-1967 (VAR-IND) genome segment (53,018 bp) from the right terminal region have been carried out. Fifty nine potential open reading frames (ORFs) of over 60 amino acid residues have been identified. Structure-function organization of VAR-IND DNA segment under study was compared with the… (More)
