Genome organizations of a novel betacoronavirus, in boldface, discovered in dromedaries in the Middle East in 2013, and representative coronaviruses from each coronavirus genus (labeled on left). Numbers at top represent genome position. A, B, C, and D represent betacoronavirus lineages. Papain-like proteases (PL1pro, PL2pro, and PLpro), chymotrypsin-like protease (3CLpro), and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) are represented by orange boxes. Hemagglutinin esterase (HE) and spike (S), envelop
