Abstract: © 2020, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. Species A rotaviruses are a major cause of acute gastroenteritis in infants and young children worldwide. Reassortment is a common phenomenon due to the segmented nature of the rotavirus genome. The complete coding sequences of a species A rotavirus strain isolated from the feces of a child with acute gastroenteritis in Japan in 2018 were determined using an unbiased viral metagenomics approach. The genetic analysis revealed that the rotavirus strain had an unusual genomic constellation (G1-P[8]-I1-R1-C1-M1-A1-N1-T1-E2-H1), suggesting reassortment of a genotype 1 with a genotype 2 rotavirus, from which the NSP4-encoding gene was acquired.
