Appendix Figure 1

Norovirus genotype profiles detected in foodborne outbreaks, showing strains detected in A) food or B) humans; C) person-borne outbreaks; D) food handler-borne outbreaks; E) outbreaks with an unknown mode of transmission; and F) routine monitored bivalve mollusks. The genotypes are sorted for their relevance in unknown outbreaks.
