Genome Sequence of a Human Norovirus GII.4 Hong Kong[P31] Variant in Hong Kong, China

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2020 Jan 16;9(3):e01391-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01391-19.


We report the nearly complete genome of a norovirus GII.4 Hong Kong[P31] variant (GII strain Hu/HK/2019/GII.4 Hong Kong[P31]/CUHK-NS-2200) that was detected in a patient with gastroenteritis in August 2019. The genome was sequenced by metagenomic next-generation sequencing and was found to have 92.8% nucleotide similarity to the closest GII.4 norovirus sequence in GenBank.
