Genome sequence conservation of Hendra virus isolates during spillover to horses, Australia.Emerg Infect Dis. 2010 Nov; 16(11):1767-9.EI
Bat-to-horse transmission of Hendra virus has occurred at least 14 times. Although clinical signs in horses have differed, genome sequencing has demonstrated little variation among the isolates. Our sequencing of 5 isolates from recent Hendra virus outbreaks in horses found no correlation between sequences and time or geographic location of outbreaks.
