The genome of Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) has a high G+C content, which largely differs from those of vaccinia virus (VAC) and other characterized poxviruses. This has precluded the use of DNA hybridization for the identification of MCV genes and the further establishment of the virus genetic map. To circumvent this problem, we have partially… CONTINUE READING
