Newcastle disease (ND) is devastating for poultry production worldwide. There are recent outbreaks of ND in vaccinated commercial poultry flocks of different regions of Pakistan. By Next generation sequencing approach, we detected and sequenced whole genome of Newcastle Disease Virus sub-genotype VIIi which is associated with recent outbreaks of ND.
