Two strains of classical swine fever virus (CSFV) (SRB/CSFV/1264/2005 and SRB/CSFV/6168/2006), producing serious clinical signs of disease during outbreaks in 2005 and 2006 in Serbia, were isolated on porcine kidney cells, and their complete genomes were determined by next-generation sequencing. This first complete genome characterization of Serbian CSFV strains provides new data about the evolution of CSFV in the Balkan region and enables further detailed phylogenetic studies of the various strains.
This study was supported by project J4-8224, financed by the Slovenian Research Agency, and by project TR31084 funded by the Serbian Ministry of Education Sciences and Technological Development.
