Abstract

White spot disease, caused by the white spot syndrome virus (WSSV), has caused major losses in shrimp farming in Egypt since 2009. The genome sequence of the WSSV-Egypt isolate will be valuable in epidemiological studies to delineate the origin and spread of WSSV in Egypt and elsewhere in the world.
