The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses
Physicochemical and morphological relationships of some arthropod-borne viruses to bluetongue virus--a new taxonomic group. Physiocochemical and serological studies.
Several arthropod-borne viruses were grouped on the basis of relative stability to lipid solvents and sodium deoxycholate, lability at pH 3.0, and lack of antigenic relationship to major arbovirus serologic groups A, B, and Bunyamwera, distinguished from reoviruses by acid lability, slight solvent sensitivity, and serology.
Transmission of Ebola Viruses: What We Know and What We Do Not Know
It is hypothesized that Ebola viruses have the potential to be respiratory pathogens with primary respiratory spread, particularly during major epidemics such as the 2013–2015 West Africa situation.
Two African Viruses Serologically and Morphologically Related to Rabies Virus
Lagos bat virus and an isolate from shrews were found to be bullet-shaped and to mature intracytoplasmically in association with a distinct matrix, and form a subgrouping within the rhabdoviruses.
Structural proteins of La Crosse virus
Electron microscopy of purified La Crosse virus indicated that the virus particle is enveloped and possesses irregular surface projections (length, 10 nm) and the approximate number of protein molecules per virion has been determined.

Today, many activities involving zoonotic disease control are at risk because of a failed investigative infrastructure or financial base, and their prevention and control will require unique strategies, based more on fundamental research than on traditional approaches.

The pattern of infection and virus shedding in M. natalensis is ideal for maintenance of the virus in nature; together with the epidemiological field data this emphasizes the incidental nature of the exposure and infection of man.
Genus Coltivirus (family Reoviridae): genomic and morphologic characterization of Old World and New World viruses
These findings, together with the comparative analysis to genomes of south-east Asian isolates, support the recent classification of arboviruses with 12 segments of dsRNA within two distinct genera and raise interesting questions about the evolutionary origins of coltiviruses.
