BACKGROUND Noroviruses are one of the major causes of acute human nonbacterial gastroenteritis, and genotype II.4 (GII.4) has accounted for the majority of adult outbreaks. In addition, novel epidemic strain emerges every 2 to 3 years and spreads globally in months. There are little data reporting the evolutionary dynamics of GII.4 variants along a specific period in China. METHODS All norovirus GII.4 sequences in China were downloaded from GenBank Database. Phylogenetic tree was constructed… CONTINUE READING
