Fowl adenoviruses (FAdV) can produce a wide range of clinical symptoms or can be completely asymptomatic in poultry flocks. We report molecular characterization of avian adenoviruses previously detected in broilers in Iran. PCR products of positive samples of partial L1 Hexon gene were sequenced to identify adenoviruses by nucleotide sequence provided by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Nucleotide sequences were compared with isolates from Genebank D and E genotypes. By phylogenetic analysis, FAdV isolates were closely related to FAdV-11 and FAdV-7 from Iran, China, Canada and Australia with nucleotide identity up to 99%.
