Varicella-zoster virus (VZV), the cause of chickenpox and zoster, was the first human herpesvirus to be sequenced fully and the first for which vaccines have been licensed and widely used. Three groups have published genotyping schemes based on single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and, between them, have identified five distinct phylogenetic clades, with an additional two putative clades. Sequencing of over 23 whole VZV genomes from around the world further refined the phylogenetic… CONTINUE READING
