Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is a bi-segmented, double-stranded RNA virus which belongs to the genus Avibirnavirus of the family Birnavirideae. In this study, we determined the complete nucleotide sequences of a reassortment IBDV strain TL2004 with segments A and B derived from attenuated and very virulent strains of IBDV. This strain is pathogenic to SPF-embryonated eggs and chickens, although it is not as virulent as very virulent strain. Genomic sequence in GenBank analysis showed… CONTINUE READING
