Abstract

Bovine Rotavirus A (boRVA) strains are a major causative agent of diarrhea in calves. It inflicts important economic losses to the beef and dairy industry. Importantly, this virus has a zoonotic relevance due to its ability to reassort with human rotaviruses. In this study, we describe a novel boRVA associated with diarrhea in calves and closely related with human rotavirus strains based on whole genome characterization.
