Uniformity of rotavirus strain nomenclature proposed by the Rotavirus Classification Working Group (RCWG)
In April 2008, a nucleotide-sequence-based, complete genome classification system was developed for group A rotaviruses (RVs). This system assigns a specific genotype to each of the 11 genomeExpand

Recommendations for the classification of group A rotaviruses using all 11 genomic RNA segments
Recently, a classification system was proposed for rotaviruses in which all the 11 genomic RNA segments are used (Matthijnssens et al. in J Virol 82:3204–3219, 2008). Based on nucleotide identityExpand

Common evolutionary origin of aquareoviruses and orthoreoviruses revealed by genome characterization of Golden shiner reovirus, Grass carp reovirus, Striped bass reovirus and golden ide reovirus
Full-length and partial genome sequences of four members of the genus Aquareovirus, family Reoviridae (Golden shiner reovirus, Grass carp reovirus, Striped bass reovirus and golden ide reovirus) wereExpand

Tick-borne virus diseases of human interest in Europe.
Several human diseases in Europe are caused by viruses transmitted by tick bite. These viruses belong to the genus Flavivirus, and include tick-borne encephalitis virus, Omsk haemorrhagic feverExpand

Sequence analysis of bluetongue virus serotype 8 from the Netherlands 2006 and comparison to other European strains.
During 2006 the first outbreak of bluetongue ever recorded in northern Europe started in Belgium and the Netherlands, spreading to Luxemburg, Germany and north-east France. The virus overwinteredExpand

Rapid cDNA synthesis and sequencing techniques for the genetic study of bluetongue and other dsRNA viruses.
The genetic study of double-stranded (ds) RNA viruses by sequence analyses of full-length genome segments, or entire viral genomes, has been restricted by the technical difficulties involved inExpand

Detection of a Fourth Orbivirus Non-Structural Protein
The genus Orbivirus includes both insect and tick-borne viruses. The orbivirus genome, composed of 10 segments of dsRNA, encodes 7 structural proteins (VP1–VP7) and 3 non-structural proteinsExpand

Sequences of flavivirus-related RNA viruses persist in DNA form integrated in the genome of Aedes spp. mosquitoes.
Flavivirus-related sequences have been discovered in the dsDNA genome of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, demonstrating for the first time an integration into a eukaryotic genome of aExpand

Complete sequence characterization of the genome of the St Croix River virus, a new orbivirus isolated from cells of Ixodes scapularis.
An orbivirus identified as St Croix River virus (SCRV) was isolated from cells of Ixodes scapularis ticks. Electron microscopy showed particles with typical orbivirus morphology. The SCRV genome wasExpand
