Hi Alan,

There are a number of papers concerning the sequence and genomic organization
of members of the caliciviridae :

Norwalk virus: X. Jiang et al. (1993)Virology. 195: 51-61
SRSV         : P.R.Lambden et al.(1993)Science. 259: 516-519
Feline calicivirus: M.J.Carter et al.(1992)Virology. 190: 443-448
hepatitis E virus: A.W.Tam et al. (1991)Virology. 185: 120-131
RHDV:              G. Meyers et al. (1991)Virology. 184: 664-676

There is also a recent review on genomic organization and expression of
astroviruses and calicivirus by M.J.Carter (1994) Arch.Virol. 9: 429-439.

I hope this information can be of any help.
