Abstract


The complete genomic sequences of Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) of a Chinese isolate (WMV-CHN) and a Shaanxi isolate (WMV-Shaanxi) were each determined from 10 overlapping fragments. Excluding the poly(A) tail, the genome of the two isolates were 10,037 and 10,046 nucleotides in length and contained one single open reading frame of 9,651 and 9,657 nucleotides, respectively. The identity frequencies between the two complete genomes were 96.5% at the nt level and 98.5% at the amino acid level. The two complete genomic sequences shared 89.7-94.8% identity with other characterized WMV isolates at the nucleotide level and 94.6 to 97.1% at the amino acid level.
