Complete genome sequence of Kurlavirus, a novel member of the family Marseilleviridae isolated in Mumbai, India

Kiran Kondabagil, Anirvan Chatterjee


The complete genome sequence of Kurlavirus, a new member of the family Marseilleviridae is reported. The Kurlavirus genome was found to encode a remarkable complement of genes homologous to those of other members of the family Marseilleviridae. Interestingly, the Kurlavirus genome contains 71 fewer ORFs than that of Marseillevirus, even though their genome sizes are comparable.
