  • a p.i., postinfection.

  • b Extracted liver tissue was analyzed using inverse PCR followed by sequencing for the detection of unique and total virus-cell junctions as described in Materials and Methods.

  • c The complexity of virus-cell junctions was calculated as the ratio of unique to total virus-cell junctions detected.
