Prawn White Spot Bacilliform Virus (WSBV) is a major pathogen that causes prawn diseases. In this study, we examined the sequence of WSBV genome DNA in the shrimp Penaeus japonicus, P. vannamei, P. Monodon, P. chinensis and Metapenaeus ensis through successive PCR amplification of the DNA fragments in the whole WSBV genome. We found a sequence deletion hotspot in the WSBV genome that is 305107 bp in length. The sizes of the deleted fragments were 4.6, 4.8 or 8.1 kbp depending on the species of… CONTINUE READING
