Abstract: The spike genes of 22 different TGEV strains were selected from GenBank and analysed by the Bioinformatics analysis software. The results showed that the A and C antigen sites are more conservative than B and D antigen sites. The results could establish the rationale for preparing vaccine of epitopes and diagnostic reagent.
