Complete genome sequence of a bovine ephemeral fever virus isolate from Israel

Here, we report the first complete genome of a bovine ephemeral fever virus (BEFV) isolate from an infected bovine in Israel. The genome shares 95.3% identity with a Turkish genomic sequence but contains alpha3 and gamma open reading frames that are truncated compared to those of existing BEFV genome sequences.
