Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A(H5N1) viruses (HPAIv) continue to remain a major problem and pose a pandemic threat. In Indonesia, HPAIv is endemic but limited whole genome sequences and genetic divergence studies have been performed in recent years. Therefore, this study was conducted to analyze the genetic diversity of HPAIv A(H5N1) in recent outbreaks (2015-2016) in poultry in West Java, Indonesia. The study was carried out in six districts in West Java. Samples from poultry (chickens and ducks) with clinical signs of HPAIv infection were collected in collaboration with the Animal Health agency…
