Lytic Transcriptome Dataset of Varicella Zoster Virus Generated by Long-Read Sequencing
16th October 2018 - Frontiers in Genetics
Varicella zoster virus (VZV) belongs to the Alphaherpesvirinae subfamily of the Herpesviridae family. The presented data report is aimed toward providing a new, comprehensive transcript catalog of VZV using a long-read sequencing approach for the first time. In this study, we applied the ONT MinION device and various full-length cDNA sequencing protocols that capture the entire poly(A)-transcriptome of VZV.
