[…] equences of HBV (A- 23 sequences and D-22 sequences) from Indian subcontinent were also taken for comparative analysis. The genotypes were determined based on the identity in the S or preS gene using Oxford HBV Automated Subtyping Tool version 1.0 , . The mutation analysis of sequences was done using SeqScape® Software version 2.5 (Applied Biosystems, USA), Variant Reporter version 1.1 (Applied Bi […]
