    ABSTRACT

    In this report, a novel H5N2 avian influenza virus (AIV) was isolated from chickens in Tibet in 2010, western China. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that it was a natural reassortant between H9N2 and H5N1 subtypes. It is of note that this virus has an HP genotype with HA, PB2, M, and NS genes homologous to those of A/peregrine falcon/Hong Kong/2142/2008(H5N1)-like HPAIV isolated from dead wild birds. Publishing this genome information will contribute to the investigation of avian influenza epidemiology and to further research of AIV's biological properties.
