    Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection causes over 99% of cervical cancer and detection of HPV types might identify women at risk of development or progression of cervical cancer. This study was aimed at determining the phylogenetic relationship between the HPV strains isolated and identified. Cervical swabs were collected from the cervix and DNA was obtained by extraction and then used to identify HPV types by PCR method using consensus primer sets MY09/MY11 and GP5+/GP6+. A phylogenetic study was also carried out to determine the genetic association between strains discovered using CLUSTALW on Unipro Ugene software. All HPV isolated in this study showed 80-99% nucleotide identity with types related to the same species. The phylogenetic tree was constructed using 15 isolates from this study against 45 reference strains selected from NCB.. Read More»
