First complete genome of HCV-1a form Pakistani isolate and its Phylogenetic analysis with complete genome of rest of world

Here, we report the first patient derived hepatitis C virus (HCV) complete genome from Pakistan. Comprehensive evolutionary and phylogenetic analyses were conducted. The comparison was made in order to identify evolutionary and molecular phylogenetic relationships among HCV strains belonging to genotype 1a. The evolutionary divergence analysis for nucleotide and amino acid sequences, conducted by equal input model, suggested that evolutionary nucleotide and amino acid distances showed that the HCV Pakistani strain was genetically far [sic] from Denmark strain (0.29400 nt, 0.819646 aa) and near [sic] to German strain (0.06557 nt, 0.139449 aa), respectively. The current study will help to understand phylogenetic [sic] of Pakistani isolates.

OK, and I could admit to being ashamed of Virology Journal at this point: while this may be a perfectly good paper in terms of results, the English is bad enough to require a complete rewrite.  STARTING with the TITLE!

 

"HCV-1a form Pakistani..."?? "...analysis with complete genome of rest of world"??  WTF??
