will continue to pose challenge to public health andscientifi c community. General concern exists about possible mutation orreassortment between the H1N1pdm and infl uenza viruses circulatingin human and animal, giving rise to more transmissible or pathogenicviruses. Emergence of resistance during antiviral treatment is a wellrecognisedphenomenon in infl uenza viruses; surveillance for emergenceof resistant viruses is of importance for monitoring this potential publichealth problem in the context of the H1N1 pandemic.Thus preparedness to identify new strains would require fast sequencingof the full genome of virus. Here we present an optimised workfl ow forrapid sequencing of the entire genome sequence of the H1N1pdm thathas been applied to analyse several isolates from different pig infl uenzaoutbreaks.
