Hepatitis B viral sequence was downloaded from NCBI Tax Browser and scanned against complete genome of Homo sapiens for the presence of possible viral inserts in human genome. The alignments which showed more than 25-30 residues, 90-100 % identities and localization in the exon regions were only considered. The results from the computational analysis revealed that Hepatitis B virus resulted in viral segment inserted in the exon region of human genome.
