Abstract

Genome size (C-value) and the percentage of adenine and thymine nucleotides in the genome (AT content) are fundamental characteristics of every species, and very important parameters in molecular cytogenetic and phylogenic studies, and for the progress of whole-genome sequencing. In this study, the ...

Abstract

The Izumi plain in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, is an overwintering site of endangered cranes (hooded cranes and white-naped cranes) and of many other migratory birds (including wild ducks) that are considered carriers of avian influenza viruses (AIVs). To assess the risks of a highly pathogenic...

Abstract

The H9N2 influenza viruses are extensively circulating in the poultry population, and variable genotypes can be generated through mutation, recombination and reassortment, which may be better adapted to infect a new host, resist drug treatment or escape immune pressure. The LPAI H9N2 viruses have...
