Complete coding sequence of a novel bluetongue virus isolated from a commercial sheeppox vaccine

The full genome sequences of two isolates of bluetongue virus (BTV) from a commercial sheeppox vaccine were determined. Strain SPvvvv/02 shows low sequence identity to its closest relative, strain BTV-26 KUW2010/02, indicating the probable detection of a novel BTV genotype, whereas strain SPvvvv/03 shows high sequence identity to strain BTV-28/1537/14.
