The complete genome sequence was determined for a Newcastle disease virus strain from vaccinated chicken farms in India during outbreaks in 2010. The genome is 15,192 nucleotides (nt) in length and is classified as genotype VII in class II. Compared to the available vaccine strains, the Indian strain contains a previously described 6-nt insertion in the untranslated region of the nucleoprotein gene.
