Noroviruses and sapoviruses are members of the family Caliciviridae and emerging enteric pathogens of humans and animals. Since their discovery and characterization in swine, relatively few strains have been described in detail. In order to investigate their genetic diversity, a total of 266 fecal samples collected in the province of Quebec, Canada, between 2005 and 2007 were screened for the presence of caliciviruses by RT-PCR using broadly reactive primers. Genetically heterogeneous… CONTINUE READING
