    Abstract
    Here, using viral metagenomics combined with conventional PCR, the complete genome sequence of a novel anellovirus (named anel-ch-zj and GenBank no. MT157223) from nasopharynx secretion specimens from hospitalized neonates was determined, and the deduced amino acid sequence of its ODF1 protein was found to be only 33.19%-39.33% identical to those of related anelloviruses with sequences available in the GenBank database, suggesting that it represents a putative new genus within the family Anelloviridae. PCR screening of 135 samples (including 45 nasopharynx secretion, 45 blood, and...
