Comprehensive comparisons of genome organizations for poxviruses of different genera have not previously been reported. Here we have made such a comparison by cross-hybridizing genome fragments from capripoxvirus KS-1 and vaccinia virus WR (VV). This showed that a 100- to 115-kilobase (kb) centrally placed section is essentially colinear in organization in the two viruses and that a small region has translocated between the ends of one or other of the genomes during their divergence. No cross… CONTINUE READING
