It is well documented that baculovirus populations contain many genotypic variants, but little is known about the degree of genetic variation in specific baculovirus genes. Helicoverpa armigera nucleopolyhedrovirus (HearNPV) was used as a model system for studying genetic variation in nucleopolyhedrovirus genes. Next generation sequencing (NGS) was used to(More)
It has been well documented that baculovirus populations exhibit high levels of genetic variation. Due to the lack of sensitivity of the techniques currently used to study baculovirus genetic variation, relatively little is known about baculovirus genetic diversity at the individual insect level. Since denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) has key(More)
BACKGROUND  Few data exist describing pertussis epidemiology among infants and children in low- and middle-income countries to guide preventive strategies. METHODS  Children 1-59 months of age hospitalized with World Health Organization-defined severe or very severe pneumonia in 7 African and Asian countries and similarly aged community controls were(More)
