*The isolates were selected from the African swine fever virus (ASFV) collection at the National Research Institute for Veterinary Virology and Microbiology (VNIIVViM) in Рokrov, Russia. ASFV genotypes are assigned according to p72 (B646L) nucleotide sequencing and phylogenetic tree reconstruction. Serogroups are defined on the basis of results of hemadsorption inhibition assay (HAI) with reference serum (serogroups 1–8). ASFV isolates from primary outbreaks as well as attenuated variants have been characterized. Democratic Republic of Congo; –, not applicable; NK, not known; ND, not defined.
†If a country name changed since the virus was isolated, the current name of the country is shown in parentheses.
‡Deposited into the collection at VNIIVViM.
§Isolates Bartlett, Magadi, and Davis could not be placed into an existing serogroup because no HAI was observed with available reference serum, so exact serogroups for these isolates are not defined.
¶Isolate Spenser does not belong to any of the 22 known genotypes and remains untyped.
