Supplementary Material

To identify norovirus GII.P17-GII.17, a dual target nomenclature was used based on sequences for the viral polymerase (Figure S1) and VP1 capsid (Figure 2). Figure S1 represents an alignment of the viral polymerase sequence of norovirus GII.P17-GII17 and related noroviruses. Figure S2 is an alignment of the GIIP17.GII.17 region corresponding to the primers and probes used for real-time RT-PCR detection in many Canadian Public Health Laboratories. Table S1 is a list of the primers and probes used in this study.
