Six genotypes of hepatitis B virus (HBV) have been described. However, relatively few complete genomes originating from East Asia, where most of the world's HBV carriers live, have been studied. We analysed five complete HBV genomes of Vietnamese origin, which in our previous studies had produced atypical genotyping patterns. All five strains had HBsAg sequences with markers for serotype adw. In phylogenetic tree analysis, two of the genomes clustered with genotype C, and three clustered on a… CONTINUE READING
