The hepatitis C virus (HCV) genomic database is expanding rapidly. 
Hepatitis C Virus Genotype 7, a New Genotype Originating from Central Africa
TLDR
A new hepatitis C virus genotype identified in patients originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo is reported, and the prototype QC69 virus is shown to be a new lineage distinct from genotypes 1 to 6. Expand

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is highly associated with the type 2 diabetes mellitus, but the detailed mechanisms by which the viral proteins are involved in the clinical outcome remain unclear.
Tracing the Spread of Hepatitis C Virus in Turkey: A Phylogenetic Analysis
TLDR
It is shown that HCV genotype 1 (subtype1b) is the main genetic variant of HCV in Turkey but did not reveal any Turkish indigenous phylogenetic cluster, and Turkish strains have their closest matches from both Asia and Europe. Expand
Relation between microRNA‐21, transforming growth factor β and response to treatment among chronic hepatitis C patients
Persistence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and response to antiviral therapy has been shown to be associated with inappropriate levels of cytokines and microRNAs (miRNAs). miRNA levels haveExpand
Study on HCV direct acting drugs in treatment of chronic hepatitis C
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a serious public health concern that affects 170 million people worldwide for which no vaccine is available. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a small, enveloped,Expand
Expanded Classification of Hepatitis C Virus Into 7 Genotypes and 67 Subtypes: Updated Criteria and Genotype Assignment Web Resource
TLDR
This study represents a major update to the previous consensus HCV classification, incorporating additional sequence information derived from over 1,300 (near‐)complete genome sequences of HCV available on public databases in May 2013. Expand
Discrepancy between Hepatitis C Virus Genotypes and NS4-Based Serotypes: Association with Their Subgenomic Sequences
TLDR
The deep sequencing method provides accurate genotyping results and may be useful for analyzing discrepant cases, and Genotyping by genome amplification showed high consistency, while several false reactions were detected by serotyping. Expand
Intra‐host diversity and evolution of hepatitis C virus endemic to Côte d'Ivoire
TLDR
The results indicate a complex HCV evolution in Côte d'Ivoire, similar to the rest of West Africa, and suggest a unique HCV epidemic history in the country. Expand
The Linker Region of NS3 Plays a Critical Role in the Replication and Infectivity of Hepatitis C Virus
TLDR
It is concluded that the NS3 linker is critical for mediating protein-protein interactions and dynamic control rather than for modulating the enzymatic functions of NS3-4A. Expand
Hepatitis C Virus Genetic Variability and the Presence of NS5B Resistance-Associated Mutations as Natural Polymorphisms in Selected Genotypes Could Affect the Response to NS5B Inhibitors
TLDR
The genetic variability among HCV genotypes, particularly with the presence of polymorphisms at NNI resistance positions, could affect their responsiveness to NS5B inhibitors and help to provide patients with the full efficacy of NNI-containing regimens. Expand

Classification of hepatitis C virus into major types and subtypes based on molecular evolutionary analysis.
TLDR
Molecular evolutionary analysis was applied to determine the number of hepatitis C virus types and subtypes based on all the HCV nucleotide sequences available from the DNA data banks, and there was an excellent concordance among the types andSubtypes assigned based on different HCV genomic regions.

Nucleotide sequence of hepatitis C virus (type 3b) isolated from a Japanese patient with chronic hepatitis C.
TLDR
The genomic sequences of many hepatitis C virus isolates have been reported and a variety of virus genotypes have been classified based on homology in the conserved regions, but the amino acid sequences of these five genotypes were highly homologous in the core, NS3 and NS5B regions but the E2/NS1 region and the NS5A region were poorly conserved.

Evidence of intratypic recombination in natural populations of hepatitis C virus.
TLDR
Three different genomic regions of four HCV strains isolated from Peruvian patients were sequenced in order to investigate the congruence of HCV genotyping for these three genomic regions, revealing that a crossover event had taken place in the NS5B protein. Expand
