The genome of human papillomavirus type 23 (HPV-23; family Papillomaviridae, genus Betapapillomavirus, species Betapapillomavirus 2, type 23) was assembled by deep sequencing from nasopharyngeal swabs. The assembled genome is 2.7% divergent over its full length from the single complete genome of HPV-23 in GenBank (accession no. U31781). We named the strain HPV-23/Lancaster/2015.
