Abstract

Picobirnavirus (PBV) belongs to the family Picobirnaviridae. PBV are a group of emerging non-enveloped viruses, with a bisegmented double-stranded RNA genome that can infect a wide range of hosts. This study reports the occurrence of PBV in fecal samples from five Brazilian dairy cattle herds. From ...
