Our knowledge of the diversity and frequency of genomic structural variation segregating in populations of large double stranded (ds) DNA viruses is limited. Here we sequenced the genome of a baculovirus (AcMNPV) purified from beet armyworm (Spodoptera exigua) larvae at depths >195,000X using both short-read (Illumina) and long-read (PacBio) technologies. Using a pipeline relying on hierarchical clustering of structural variants (SVs) detected in individual short- and long-reads by six variant callers, we identified a total...
