Summary of "Whole genome sequencing of fecal samples as a tool for the diagnosis and genetic characterization of norovirus."

Norovirus is a major cause of gastroenteritis, causing yearly epidemics and hospital outbreaks resulting in a high burden on health care. Detection and characterization of norovirus directly from clinical samples could provide a powerful tool in infection control and norovirus epidemiology.
