Complete genome sequences of two novel torque teno viruses (TTVs) were identified in human brain tissue. These sequences are 3,245 nucleotides (nt) and 2,900 nt long and share 68% and 72% open reading frame 1 (ORF1) identity, respectively, with other human TTVs. This report extends the identification of TTV sequences in the brain.
