Description

Various amino acid substitutions generated by point mutations in the gene of avain influenza viruses have been known to contribute to replication, pathogenicity, transmission and antiviral resistances to the viruses. Therefore, the main objectives of the surveillance were to identify major amino acid substitutions of 8 different gene segments of avian influenza viruses isolated from wild birds.
