Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is genetically highly divergent and classified in ten genotypes and forty subgenotypes in distinct ethno‐geographic populations worldwide. Ethiopia is a country with high HBV prevalence; however, little is known about the genetic variability of HBV strains that circulate. Here, we characterize the complete genome of 29 HBV strains originating from five Ethiopian regions, by 454 deep sequencing and Sanger sequencing. Phylogenetically, ten strains were classified as… 
Novel subgenotype D11 of hepatitis B virus in NaPo County, Guangxi, bordering Vietnam.
TLDR
The authors' data provide evidence for a novel subgenotype of HBV, provisionally designated HBV subgenotypes D1-D10, which is found to form a cluster in 23 genotype D isolates, branching out from other subgenotyp D sequences and supported by a 100 % bootstrap value.
Genetic diversity of hepatitis B virus in Yunnan, China: identification of novel subgenotype C17, an intergenotypic B/I recombinant, and B/C recombinants.
TLDR
Multiple subgenotypes - namely B1, B2, B4, C1, C2, C3, C4,C8 and C17 - and two distinct intergenotypic recombinants exist in Yunnan, China, highlighting the complex and diverse distribution pattern of HBV genotypic profiles.
Complete genome sequence of a hepatitis B virus isolate of genotype D2, subtype adrq+, from Brazil
TLDR
This isolate had a genome length of 3,062 nucleotides (nt), and no recombination events were observed in the BR32 genome that could explain the occurrence of the subtype adr in a genotype D isolate.
Genetic diversity of hepatitis C virus in Ethiopia
TLDR
Investigation of the distribution and genetic diversity of HCV genotypes/subtypes in Ethiopia found genotype 4 HCV viruses, subtypes 4d and 4r, are most prevalent in Ethiopia, considered to be difficult to treat.
Hepatitis B virus genotypes A1, A2 and E in Cape Verde: Unequal distribution through the islands and association with human flows
TLDR
Interestingly, the HBV/A1 isolates from São Vicente were closely related to Brazilian sequences into the Asian-American clade, which suggests the dissemination of common African ancestors through slave trade.
Reconstruction of the spatial and temporal dynamics of hepatitis B virus genotype D in the Americas
TLDR
The detailed evolutionary history of HBV/D in the Americas was investigated by using different evolutionary time scales, and suggested times of the most recent common ancestor for the American HBv/D subgenotypes coincident with mass migratory movements to Americas during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Molecular evolution and phylodynamics of hepatitis B virus infection circulating in Iran
TLDR
Phylodynamic inference clearly demonstrates a unique homogenous pattern of HBV genotype D compatible with a steady configuration of the decreased effective number of infections in the population in recent years, possibly due to the implementation of blood donation screening and vaccination programs.
Molecular epidemiology of hepatitis B virus among HIV co-infected and mono-infected cohorts in Northwest Ethiopia
TLDR
The observed virological characteristics could contribute for evidence-based management of viral hepatitis in Ethiopia where antiretroviral therapy guidelines do not cater for viral hepatitis screening during HIV co-infection.

Molecular characterization of hepatitis B virus isolates from Zimbabwean blood donors
TLDR
The wide distribution of sub genotype in Africa, as well as the high intragroup divergence and the geographical clustering of the African and Asian subgenotype A1 HBV isolates indicate that this subgenotypes has a long period of endemicity in these regions.
Molecular epidemiology and genetic diversity of hepatitis B virus in Ethiopia
TLDR
This study provides the first description of HBV genetic diversity in Ethiopia with a predominance of subgenotypes A1 and D2, and also identified HBV isolates that could represent a novel subgenotype.
A novel hepatitis B virus (HBV) subgenotype D (D8) strain, resulting from recombination between genotypes D and E, is circulating in Niger along with HBV/E strains.
TLDR
Data suggest that, in Niger, genetic variability of HBV strains is still evolving, probably reflecting ancient endemic HBV infection.
Hepatitis B Virus Subgenotype A1: Evolutionary Relationships between Brazilian, African and Asian Isolates
TLDR
The close relatedness of the Brazilian, Asian and Somalian isolates suggests that the HBV/A1 strains predominant in Brazil did not originate from the five million slaves who were imported from Central and Western Africa from 1551 to 1840, but rather from the 300–400,000 captives forcibly removed from southeast Africa at the middle of the 19th century.
Exceptional genetic variability of hepatitis B virus indicates that Rwanda is east of an emerging African genotype E/A1 divide
TLDR
HBV shows an exceptional genetic variability in this small country, unprecedented in sub‐Saharan Africa, and not a single genotypes E virus was found indicating that this country does not belong to the genotype E crescent, but is east of an emerging African genotypeE/A1 divide.
New HBV subgenotype D9, a novel D/C recombinant, identified in patients with chronic HBeAg‐negative infection in Eastern India
TLDR
The identification and characterization of a novel subgenotype within genotype D of HBV from chronic hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)‐negative patients of Eastern India is reported, demonstrating that D9 resulted from a discrete recombination with genotype C over the precore–core region.
Genotypes and Genetic Variability of Hepatitis B Virus
TLDR
HBV genotypes/subgenotypes and genetic variability of HBV are useful in epidemiological and transmission studies, tracing human migrations, and in predicting the risk for the development of severe liver disease and response to antiviral therapy.
Hepatitis B virus subgenotype A1, occurrence of subgenotype D4, and S gene mutations among voluntary blood donors in Kenya
TLDR
It is demonstrated that continuous monitoring of the HBV diversity would help reveal circulating genotypes and subgenotypes as well as mutants of clinical significance in Kenya.
Genotype H: a new Amerindian genotype of hepatitis B virus revealed in Central America.
TLDR
The complete genomes were sequenced for ten hepatitis B virus (HBV) strains that were most similar to genotype D, although encoding d specificity, and three divergent strains, which should represent a new HBV genotype, for which the designation H is proposed.

TLDR
Interestingly, the 'A7' strains from Rwanda and Cameroon showed an interspersed clustering, but essentially no other (sub)genotypes were shared between the two countries, suggesting that 'A 7' may have evolved in a yet unknown place and may have only relatively recently spread to Rwanda and Western Cameroon.
