Zika virus complete genome from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

Abstract:
In May 2015 the first autochthonous Zika virus infection was reported in Brazil. Rapid and urgent measures are needed to contain the ongoing outbreak. Here we report the full-length ZIKV coding sequence from Bahia. Genetic analysis of outbreak sequences will be essential for characterizing the diversity of circulating strains, identifying hotspots of virus transmission and guiding public health control. Rapid and urgent measures are needed to contain the ongoing outbreak.
