In the first part of this article we review what has been learnt from the analysis of the sequence of HCMV. A summary of this information is presented in the form of an updated map of the viral genome. HCMV is representative of a major lineage of herpesviruses distinct from previously sequenced members of this viral family and demonstrates striking differences in genetic content and organization. The virus encodes approximately 200 genes, including nine gene families, a large number of… CONTINUE READING
