Genome Sequence of Novel Human Parechovirus Type 17

Genome Announc. 2017 Feb 23;5(8):e01649-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01649-16.


Human parechoviruses (HPeV) circulate worldwide, causing a broad variety of symptoms, preferentially in early childhood. We report here the nearly complete genome sequence of a novel HPeV type, consisting of 7,062 nucleotides and encoding 2,179 amino acids. M36/CI/2014 was taxonomically classified as HPeV-17 by the picornavirus study group.
