As with most sequences, that of Ebola is stored in Genbank. There are
many interfaces available for searching genbank; I'm an old-fashioned guy,
and so I do it via e-mail. The address is <retrieve at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov>.
Send a message to that address saying only "help" and you'll get
instructions on how to do a search (it's very easy). A quick survey, with
an elapsed time of less than 30 seconds, tells me that there are 24 Ebola
or Ebola-related sequences stored in Genbank; it looks as if two are
almost-complete genomes, and you can probably work out the missing bits
(if any) by a little examination of the remaining sequences.
Hope this helps.
