Human Rhinovirus B and C Genomes from Rural Coastal Kenya

Genome Announc. 2016 Jul 28;4(4):e00751-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00751-16.


Primer-independent agnostic deep sequencing was used to generate three human rhinovirus (HRV) B genomes and one HRV C genome from samples collected in a household respiratory survey in rural coastal Kenya. The study provides the first rhinovirus genomes from Kenya and will help improve the sensitivity of local molecular diagnostics.
