Comparative ORF and whole genome sequencing analysis of the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) in routine samples reveal a recombinant virus strain
Porcine respiratory and reproductive syndrome (PRRS) is one of the economically most important diseases in global pig production, and is caused by the PRRS virus (PRRSV). Annual losses caused by PRRS in the United States are estimated to be $664 million (Holtkamp et al. 2013). In Germany, PRRS was detected for the first time in November 1990 (Drew 1995). Outbreaks in Baden-Württemberg (a federal state of Germany) in 2012–2013 cumulated in costs up to €135,000 per farm and outbreak (Richter et al. 2014).
