Core Tip New tools for hepatitis B virus infection treatment and follow-up are needed. Hepatitis B virus core protein has a key role in viral replication and persistence. Analysis of viral quasispecies by next-generation sequencing can identify conserved regions in viral genes or proteins that may serve as targets for new therapeutic and diagnostic strategies. Moreover, it may help identify prognostic markers of liver disease progression. Here, we detected hyper-conserved nucleotide and amino acid regions regardless of the clinical stage. Moreover, we observed several group-specific conserved and variable regions and an amino acid substitution that could be indicative of different disease progression.
