T.perforatus MERS-CoV strain sequence, and others, online...

If you're a bit of a sequence collector/hoarder/nut then you'll be interested to know that the recent bat CoV RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) sequences are now online on GenBank.

These seem to include the primer regions judging by their length. Consider that when using them.

The MERS-CoV strain from T.perfortaus is CII_KSA_287 - highlighted in bold. Please note, that at writing, it is erroneously identified on GenBank as originating from Rhinopoma hardwickii. It should be Taphozous perforatus.
