Title:Madarak orthoreovírusainak összehasonlító genomvizsgálata
Avian reoviruses belong to the genus Orthoreovirus. An increasing amount of data is becoming available about these viruses, however, by the time we have started our work, only two near-complete chicken reovirus genome sequences were known. Thus there is only a small amount of data available about the genetic variety of orthoreoviruses found in poultry. Therefore, the main aim of our work was to define the genomic sequences and to analyze the phylogenetic relationship of the virus strains derived from different poultry species.
