Human adenoviruses (HAdVs) are the major causes of a variety of acute illnesses. Virus isolation and neutralization tests are usually done to identify the causative virus, but these tests are labor-intensive and time-consuming, and standardized antisera are in limited supply. This study investigated a rapid and reliable method of virus identification based on PCR and phylogenetic analysis. The phylogenetic tree constructed by neighbor joining on the basis of the newly determined partial hexon… CONTINUE READING
