Pandemic H1N1 In California Elephant Seals
Recombinomics Commentary 12:15
January 31, 2013

University of California Davis vet school has released two set of nearly full H1N1pdm09 sequences (A/Elephant seal/California/1/2010 and A/elephant seal/California/2/2010) for all 8 gene segments from Northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) collected in April and May 2010 off the coast of central California.  The sequences were virtually identical to each other and closely related to H1N1pdm09 in humans in 2009 and 2010.

These two isolates clearly expand the known host range for pandemic H1N1 and raise concerns that the virus is far more widespread than the current sequence database.
