Emergence of a new recombinant Sydney 2012 norovirus variant in Denmark, 26 December 2012 to 22 March 2013

J Fonager, S Barzinci, T K Fischer

Abstract

We report here new recombinants between the norovirus II.4 Sydney 2012 and the II.4 New Orleans 2009 variants. This demonstrates that the II.4 Sydney 2012 variant is undergoing further diversification and suggests a potential for rapid evolution. We also provide primers, which allow the amplification and sequencing of both the current New Orleans 2009 and Sydney 2012 variants and the new II.4 New Orleans 2009/II.4 Sydney 2012 recombinants for more accurate surveillance and transmission tracking.
