The genomes of 22 isolates of Kunjin virus (KUN) from Australia were characterized and compared using RNase T1 oligonucleotide fingerprinting. The results show that all isolates belonged to one topotype, the distribution of which covered the entire Australian continent. This finding is similar to that of Murray Valley encephalitis virus, but in contrast to the results reported for some other flaviviruses such as Saint Louis encephalitis virus.
