Abstract

We report the entire genome sequence of an isolate of Spodoptera frugiperda multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus from Nigeria, West Africa. The genome is 132,710 bp long and contains 144 open reading frames. The GC content is 40.3% and, based on baculovirus species demarcation criteria, the isolate belongs to the species Spodoptera frugiperdamultiple nucleopolyhedrovirus.
