The origin of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in humans and other primates remains largely unresolved. Understanding the origin of HBV is crucial because it provides a framework for studying the burden, and subsequently the evolution, of HBV pathogenicity with respect to changes in human population size and life expectancy. To investigate this controversy we examined the relationship between HBV phylogeny and genetic diversity of modern humans, investigated the timescale of global HBV… 
Origins and Evolution of the Primate Hepatitis B Virus
TLDR
A model for the origin and evolution of HBV is proposed, which includes multiple cross-species transmissions and favors subsequent recombination events that result in a pathogen and can successfully transmit and cause persistent infection in the primate host.
Dating the origin and dispersal of global hepatitis B virus genotype C in humans.
TLDR
This study provides further evidence of the challenge from a population-based molecular level to eliminate HBV by 2030, and calls for a concerted effort from policy makers, health providers, and society in the globalized world.
New Insights into the Evolutionary Rate of Hepatitis B Virus at Different Biological Scales
TLDR
By studying the HBV quasispecies dynamics for a chain of sequentially infected transmissions within a family, it is hypothesized that owing to the small genome size of HBV, transmission between hosts and adaptation within hosts must exhibit high levels of fitness trade-offs for the virus.
Ten millennia of hepatitis B virus evolution
TLDR
The most recent common ancestor of all HBV lineages is dated to between ~20,000 and 12,000 years ago, with the virus present in European and South American hunter-gatherers during the early Holocene.
Tracing Ancient Human Migrations into Sahul Using Hepatitis B Virus Genomes.
TLDR
Findings reveal that HBV genomes can be used to infer ancient human population movements and suggest that it was carried into Melanesia by Indigenous Melanesians who migrated through New Guinea north of the highlands.

Bayesian Inference of the Evolution of HBV/E
TLDR
The results confirm that the hyperendemicity of HBV(E) in today's Africa is a recent phenomenon and likely the result of dramatic changes in the routes of viral transmission in a relatively recent past.
Recent molecular evolution of hepatitis B virus genotype F in Latin America.
TLDR
The overall effective population size of HBV-F grew in the 18th century and showed an initial expansion outward from Venezuela to other countries from Latin America.

Recombination in the Genesis and Evolution of Hepatitis B Virus Genotypes
TLDR
Findings provide evidence for the occurrence of past, extensive recombination events in the evolutionary history of the currently classified genotypes of HBV and potentially in changes in its global epidemiology and associations with human disease.

TLDR
The apparent conservatism of viruses over long periods implied by their epidemiological distributions instead suggests that nucleotide sequence change may be subject to constraints peculiar to viruses with single-stranded genomes, or with overlapping reading frames that defy attempts to reconstruct evolution according to the principles of the 'molecular clock'.
Hepatitis B virus infection in non-human primates.
TLDR
Enhanced awareness of prevalence, genetic relatedness and evolution of non-human primate HBVs will help prevent further spread and cross-transmission of these viruses between humans and non- human primates.

Bayesian Estimates of the Evolutionary Rate and Age of Hepatitis B Virus
TLDR
It is concluded that hepatitis B virus exhibits rapid evolutionary dynamics, typical of other viruses dependent on reverse transcriptase-mediated replication.
Distinct geographical and demographic distribution of hepatitis B virus genotypes in the Canadian Arctic as revealed through an extensive molecular epidemiological survey
TLDR
The high prevalence of HBV/B6 andHBV/D genotypes in Arctic populations is established and their marked distribution within the Canadian Arctic is revealed based on geographical and demographic attributes.
Complete Genome Sequence and Phylogenetic Relatedness of Hepatitis B Virus Isolates in Papua, Indonesia
TLDR
Investigating the complete genome sequence of 22 strains from Papua and subjected them to molecular evolutionary analysis confirmed by complete sequence analysis that two novel HBV subgenotypes, HBV/C6 andHBV/D6, are prevalent in Papua, Indonesia.
Tracing hepatitis B virus to the 16th century in a Korean mummy
TLDR
This study describes the complete sequence of the oldest HBV isolate and the most ancient full viral genome known so far, which probably represents the earliest human HBV sequence that colonized Southeast Asia by human migration.

TLDR
Strong evidence is provided for a chimpanzee-specific genotype of HBV which circulates in nature and adds to the recent evidence for infection in the wild of other Old and New World primates with species-specific variants ofHBV.
