PaVE Revised and Annotated Reference Genomes

Many original papillomavirus sequences contained errors that are still present in the original Genbank sequence record and the RefSeq records. These records were rectified based on updated sequences submitted to the Los Alamos Papillomavirus resource. Some other genomes contain mutations or errors that disrupt major ORFs. In the interest of developing an accurate Reference Clone, if these mutations or errors are not present in multiple variants of the same viral type, they have been corrected. Revisions are noted in the Refclone table. The PaVE Reference Genomes (HPV_REF) have been re-annotated for uniformity.
