Genome Structure

The genome is not segmented and contains a single molecule of circular. The genome is -Rt and it is a double-stranded DNA that forms an open cicle. The complete genome is sequenced and 7200-76000 nucleotides long. The genome guanine+cytosime content is 39.6-44.1 %. The genome has terminally redundant sequences that have direct terminal repeats and are reiterated internally in inverted form. (source: ICTV dB Descriptions)
