Genomic characterization, detection and molecular evolution of arthropod-borne viruses of the family Bunyaviridae
MetadataShow full item record
The genomic characterization, detection and evolution of arthropod-borne human pathogens and related viruses of the family Bunyaviridae are presented. This study began with the determination of primary nucleotide sequence data for a diversity of bunyaviruses of interest that were not previously characterized at the genetic level. Following molecular characterization, an RT-PCR strategy was designed, according to previously determined and newly derived nucleotide sequence data, to target S genomic segments of 47 viruses, including 29 arthropod-borne human pathogens, of the family Bunyaviridae. ...
