Recombination within the norovirus (NoV) GII.4 genotype is well documented as a mechanism by which novel variants evolve. Norovirus GII.4 has been the predominant NoV genotype detected in South Africa (SA) in recent years and putative NoV recombinants were previously identified in SA based on partial regions of the viral genome. The objective of this study was to determine the complete genome sequence of representative NoV GII.4 variants that have circulated in SA between 2009 and 2013 and to… CONTINUE READING
