  2. pmc Genetic variability and the classification of hepatitis E virus
    Donald B Smith
    University of Edinburgh, Centre for Immunology, Infection and Evolution, Ashworth Laboratories, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    J Virol 87:4161-9. 2013
    ..This approach may form the basis for a future genetic classification of HEV into four species, with the more divergent HEV-like virus from fish (cutthroat trout virus) representing a second genus...

    Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution, University of Edinburgh, Ashworth Building, King s Buildings, Edinburgh EH9 3JF, UK
    J Gen Virol 93:2408-18. 2012
    ..Taken together, these observations are consistent with the hypothesis that the HVR has a structural role that is dependent upon length and amino acid composition, rather than a specific sequence...

    J Gen Virol 93:259-66. 2012
    ..Our observation of species-specific associations of MNV variants in wild populations suggests that murine noroviruses have an ancient origin, a feature that they may share with other norovirus genogroups...
