Cameroonian fruit bats harbor divergent viruses, including rotavirus H, bastroviruses, and picobirnaviruses using an alternative genetic code
The results of the phage community analyses of these bats indicate a very diverse geographically distinct bat phage population, probably reflecting different diets and gut bacterial ecosystems.
Identification of a novel bufavirus in domestic pigs by a viral metagenomic approach.
Bayesian and maximum-likelihood analyses of genome sequences showed a close relationship of porcine bufaviruses to human and monkey bufavIRuses, and molecular dating of the most recent common ancestors supported a recent introduction of bufavirus into human and pig populations.
Sequencing and molecular modeling identifies candidate members of Caliciviridae family in bats
Divergent bufavirus harboured in megabats represents a new lineage of parvoviruses
Results characterized megabat bufavirus 1 as the first protoparvovirus discovered from megabats and indicates the high genetic divergence of bufav virus.
Detection and genetic characterization of a novel parvovirus distantly related to human bufavirus in domestic pigs
Swine/Zsana3/2013/HUN is highly prevalent in domestic pigs and potentially represents a novel parvovirus species in the subfamily Parvovirinae.
Bats as Viral Reservoirs.

    Annual review of virology
  • 2016
Viruses of all viral families detected in global bat populations are reviewed, including those with global or wide distributions such as Emballonuridae and Miniopteridae, which are underrepresented on viral databases.
Detection of adenovirus, papillomavirus and parvovirus in Brazilian bats of the species Artibeus lituratus and Sturnira lilium
The aim of this study was to detect fragments of viral genomes in bat samples and increase knowledge about viral diversity and illustrate the importance of conducting virus surveillance in bats.
Update on Potentially Zoonotic Viruses of European Bats
The present review provides an update on the earlier article and summarizes the most important viruses found in European bats and their possible implications for Public Health.
Metagenomic analysis of bat guano samples revealed the presence of viruses potentially carried by insects, among others by Apis mellifera in Hungary.
The metagenomic analysis conducted on bat guano samples has revealed the significant predominance of aphid lethal paralysis virus (ALPV) and Big Sioux River virus (BSRV) in Hungary for the first time.
Genomic sequencing and characterization of a novel group of canine bufaviruses from Henan province, China
Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that the two strains clustered together in a novel group that was distant from previously reported CBuV strains, which will strengthen the understanding of the epidemiology and genetic diversity of CBUV in China.


Genetic characterization of a novel picornavirus detected in Miniopterus schreibersii bats.
The first molecular data and genomic characterization of a novel picornavirus from the bat species M. schreibersii in Europe is reported, and based on phylogenetic analyses, the novel bat picORNaviruses unambiguously belong to the Mischivirus genus and were highly divergent from other bat-derived picornviruses of the Sapelovirus genus.

The prevalence, unprecedented viral biodiversity, phylogenetic divergence, and worldwide distribution of the bat-derived viruses suggest that bats are a major and ancient natural reservoir for both hepaciviruses and pegivirus and provide insights into the evolutionary history of hepatitis C virus and the human GB viruses.
European Bats as Carriers of Viruses with Zoonotic Potential
In this review, selected viruses detected and isolated in Europe are discussed from a point of view in regard to their human-pathogenic potential.

This review will provide an overview of the virological, pathogenic and clinical features of the different human paroviruses, and how these new viruses and their variants fit into the current understanding of parvovirus infection.
Comparative analysis reveals frequent recombination in the parvoviruses.
It is shown that natural recombination may be widespread in these viruses, and different genome regions of both porcine parvoviruses and Aleutian mink disease viruses have conflicting phylogenetic histories, providing evidence for recombination within each of these two species.
Bufavirus in Feces of Patients with Gastroenteritis, Finland
To gain a more complete representation of BuV occurrence, samples retrospectively from routine diagnostics for bacterial and viral gastroenteritis-inducing pathogens were obtained and analyzed all samples available during the collection periods and a viral pathogen was discovered in 141 samples.
New World Bats Harbor Diverse Influenza A Viruses
Using consensus degenerate RT-PCR, a novel influenza A virus is identified in a flat-faced fruit bat from Peru, indicating that bats constitute a potentially important and likely ancient reservoir for a diverse pool of influenza viruses.

Acute Diarrhea in West African Children: Diverse Enteric Viruses and a Novel Parvovirus Genus
The presence of a proposed new Parvoviridae genus containing at least two species of parvovirus is identified during a viral metagenomic analysis of feces from children with acute diarrhea in Burkina Faso.
The fecal virome of domesticated animals
This approach has been used in several studies investigating fecal samples of livestock, and companion animal species, providing information on the diversity of animal fecal virome, helping the elucidation of the etiology of diarrheal disease in animals and identifying potential zoonotic and emerging viruses.
