Complete Genome Sequences of BK Polyomavirus Strains from Two Patients with Urinary Tract Infection, Sequenced Using the Ion Torrent Platform.

26 Feb 2018

BK polyomavirus is an important pathogen in kidney transplant patients. We report here two complete genome sequences, those of isolates CAMB-1035 and CAMB-1055, identified in two urine samples tested for urinary tract infection at a hospital in eastern England, United Kingdom. Variation and phylogenetic analyses indicate that both isolates belong to subtype Ib-1.
