Astroviruses infect a variety of mammals and birds and are causative agents of diarrhea in humans and other animal hosts. We have previously described the identification of several sequence fragments with limited sequence identity to known astroviruses in a stool specimen obtained from a child with acute diarrhea, suggesting that a novel virus was present. In this study, the complete genome of this novel virus isolate was sequenced and analyzed. The overall genome organization of this virus… CONTINUE READING
