We determined the complete nucleotide sequences of the small (S) and medium (M) RNA genome segments of a Kairi virus (KRIV) isolate from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The S segment consists of 992 nucleotides, and the M segment consists of 4,619 nucleotides. Phylogenetic analyses were conducted on each genomic segment, and these data are discussed. A 526 nucleotide region of the large (L) segment was also sequenced. This is the first study to present sequence and phylogenetic data for a KRIV isolate from Latin America.
