- The importance of intergenic recombination in norovirus GII.3 evolutionJackie E Mahar
Enteric Virus Group, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Royal Children s Hospital, Parkville, Victoria, Australia
J Virol 87:3687-98. 2013..In conclusion, evolution of GII.3 noroviruses was primarily driven by intergenic recombination. The acquisition of new RdRps may lead to a faster mutation rate and increased genetic diversity, improving overall GII.3 fitness...
- Identification and characterization of antibody-binding epitopes on the norovirus GII.3 capsidJackie E Mahar
Enteric Virus Group, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Royal Children s Hospital, Parkville, Vic, Australia
J Virol 88:1942-52. 2014..Immunological understanding of pediatric norovirus strains is important since norovirus vaccines will likely target high-risk groups such as the pediatric population. ..
- Characterization of norovirus strains in Australian children from 2006 to 2008: prevalence of recombinant strainsJackie E Mahar
Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Royal Children s Hospital, Parkville, Victoria, Australia
J Med Virol 83:2213-9. 2011..This study highlights the importance of norovirus infection as a cause of pediatric gastroenteritis. It also reinforces the high circulation of recombinant strains causing disease in children, particularly the GII.3/GIIb strain...
