A number of unassigned rodent picornavirus genomes have been deposited on GenBank (Wu et al., 2018), They await further analysis, but my preliminary findings (using polymerase sequences in BLAST) are as follows:

Virus Strain Region Length Accession no. Host Reference


  RtAs-PicoV/XJ2016 3C(p)-3'UTR 1632 KY432938 Allactaga sibirica Wu et al., 2018


  SoreX-PicoV/ZJ2016 3C(p)-3D(p) 883 KY432941 Sorex sp.? Wu et al., 2018
