- The whole-genome sequence of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) from a wild Australian regent parrot (Polytelis anthopeplus monarchoides) was characterized. The genome consists of 1,993 bp and has a typical stem-loop structure between open reading frame 1 (ORF1) and ORF2. This is the first evidence of BFDV infection as well as the complete genome sequence for this host species, globally.
