Abstract

The characteristics of life-long persistent infection of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and the prevalence of different genotypes of HBV in China may cause new recombinants. In north-west China, HBV inter-genotype recombinants have been reported frequently over the last decade. Here, we report a B/C inter-genotype recombinant HBV with a novel genome mosaic structure from Lanzhou, a city in north-west China.
