Genetic diversity of avian paramyxovirus type 1: proposal for a unified nomenclature and classification system of Newcastle disease virus genotypes.
TLDR
This study assessed the genetic diversity of the avian paramyxovirus type-1 (APMV-1) and proposed a unified nomenclature and a classification system based on objective criteria to separate NDV into genotypes to facilitate studies on NDV epidemiology, evolution, disease control and diagnostics. Expand
Newcastle disease: evolution of genotypes and the related diagnostic challenges.
TLDR
The molecular epidemiology and recent diagnostic problems related to viral evolution of NDV are reviewed and it is explained why a new system, based on objective criteria, is needed to categorize genotypes. Expand
The Genome of a Very Virulent Marek's Disease Virus
TLDR
The first complete genomic sequence of a very virulent strain of Marek's disease virus serotype 1 (MDV1), Md5 is presented, which contains only two copies of the 132-bp repeat which has previously been associated with viral attenuation and loss of oncogenicity. Expand
Phylogenetic Diversity among Low-Virulence Newcastle Disease Viruses from Waterfowl and Shorebirds and Comparison of Genotype Distributions to Those of Poultry-Origin Isolates
TLDR
The close phylogenetic proximity of some WS and LBM loNDV suggests that viral transmission may occur among wild birds and poultry; however, these events may occur unnoticed due to the broad genetic diversity of lo NDV, the lentogenic presentation in birds, and the limitations of current rapid diagnostic tools. Expand
The Genome of Fowlpox Virus
TLDR
A diverse complement of genes with likely host range functions in FPV suggests significant viral adaptation to the avian host and the presence of a photoreactivation DNA repair pathway suggests that significant modification of host cell function occurs upon viral infection. Expand
The Genomes of Sheeppox and Goatpox Viruses
TLDR
Comparative genomic data indicate the close genetic relationship among capripoxviruses, and they suggest that SPPV and GTPV are distinct and likely derived from an LSDV-like ancestor. Expand
The Genome of Melanoplus sanguinipes Entomopoxvirus
TLDR
The first characterization of the genome of an entomopoxvirus (EPV) which infects the North American migratory grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes and other important orthopteran pests is presented, suggesting that MsEPV is heavily reliant on host cell nucleotide pools and the de novo nucleotide biosynthesis pathway. Expand
Genomes of the Parapoxviruses Orf Virus and Bovine Papular Stomatitis Virus
TLDR
Compared to other mammalian chordopoxviruses, PPV shares unique genomic features with molluscum contagiosum virus, including a G+C-rich nucleotide composition, three orthologous genes, and a paucity of nucleotide metabolism genes. Expand
Genome Sequence of a Baculovirus Pathogenic forCulex nigripalpus
TLDR
The striking difference in genome organization, the low level of conservation of homologous genes, and the lack of many genes conserved in other baculoviruses suggest a large evolutionary distance between CuniNPV and lepidopteran baculinuses. Expand
Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2016
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV). Expand
