Seoul (SEO) viruses belong to the Hantavirus genus (family Bunyaviridae), cause the moderate form of haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, and have been associated with laboratory-acquired infections in many countries. To investigate the pedigree of an isolate, designated IR461, which was obtained from a laboratory-acquired infection in a UK research institute, we determined the nucleotide sequences of the small (S) and medium (M) genome segments. In addition, we determined the sequences of… CONTINUE READING
