- Two complete genomes of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) were characterized from Lathamus discolor, the Australian swift parrot. This is the first report of BFDV complete genome sequences in this host. The completed BFDV genomes consist of 1,984 nucleotides encoding two open reading frames with 99.7% pairwise nucleotide identity.
