The Hepevirdae study group intends to post genome alignments of genera and species within the family in the near future.
The Table below gives a summary of the current taxonomic structure of the Hepeviridaeas as proposed in: Smith, D. B., Simmonds, P., Jameel, S., Emerson, S. U., Harrison, T. J., Meng, X.-J., Okamoto, H., Van der Poel, W. H. M. & Purdy, M. A. (2014). Consensus proposals for classification of the family Hepeviridae. J Gen Virol 95, 2223–32 and ratified by the ICTV.
An alignment of concatenated ORF1 and ORF2 amino acid sequences of Orthohepevirus species is available in FASTA and SSE formats.
Reference sequences for subtypes of Orthohepvirus A have been proposed in: Smith, D. B., Simmonds, P., Izopet, J., Oliveira-Filho, E. F., Ulrich, R. G., Johne, R., Koenig, M., Jameel, S., Harrison, T. J., Meng X-J., Okamoto H., van der Poel W.H.M. and Purdy M.A. (2016). Proposed reference sequences for Hepatitis E virus subtypes. J Gen Virol. 97: 537-542 (doi: 10.1099/jgv.0.000393). A Table summarising these reference sequences is available here.
