Uniformity of rotavirus strain nomenclature proposed by the Rotavirus Classification Working Group (RCWG)
TLDR
With increasing numbers of complete RV genome sequences becoming available, a standardized RV strain nomenclature system is needed, and the RCWG proposes that individual RV strains are named as follows: RV group/species of origin/country of identification/common name/year of identification /G- and P-type.
Recommendations for the classification of group A rotaviruses using all 11 genomic RNA segments
TLDR
A Rotavirus Classification Working Group (RCWG) including specialists in molecular virology, infectious diseases, epidemiology, and public health was formed, which can assist in the appropriate delineation of new genotypes, thus avoiding duplications and helping minimize errors.
Tick-borne virus diseases of human interest in Europe.
TLDR
The epidemiology, clinical picture and methods for diagnosis are detailed in this review, and some of these viral pathogens have been classified in Categories A-C of potential bioterrorism agents by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
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
TLDR
Genetic analysis revealed homology in the genes of the aquareovirus and orthoreoviruses groups, indicating clear genetic relatedness between members of distinct genera, unique within the family Reoviridae.
Sequence analysis of bluetongue virus serotype 8 from the Netherlands 2006 and comparison to other European strains.
TLDR
Although NET2006/04 showed high levels of nucleotide identity with other 'western' BTV strains, it represents a new introduction and was not derived from the BTV-8 vaccine, although its route of entry into Europe has not been established.
Rapid cDNA synthesis and sequencing techniques for the genetic study of bluetongue and other dsRNA viruses.
TLDR
Improved methods for sequence-independent synthesis of full-length cDNA copies of dsRNA genes and associated sequencing strategies are described and make it possible to generate sequence data rapidly from multiple isolates for molecular epidemiology studies.
Sequences of flavivirus-related RNA viruses persist in DNA form integrated in the genome of Aedes spp. mosquitoes.
TLDR
These flavivirus-related integrated DNA sequences were detected in laboratory-bred and wild Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, demonstrating that their discovery is not an artefact resulting from the manipulation of mosquito cell lines, since they exist under natural conditions.
Detection of a Fourth Orbivirus Non-Structural Protein
TLDR
Bioinformatic analyses indicate that NS4 contains coiled-coils, is related to proteins that bind nucleic acids, or are associated with membranes and shows similarities to nucleolar protein UTP20 (a processome subunit).
Coltiviruses and Seadornaviruses in North America, Europe, and Asia
TLDR
Neurotropic virus disease is often misdiagnosed as Japanese encephalitis and should be considered as a separate disease rather than a replacement for encephalopathy.
Genetic analysis of full-length genomes and subgenomic sequences of TT virus-like mini virus human isolates.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship between the complete genomic sequences of ten Japanese and one French isolate of TT virus-like mini virus (TLMV) suggested that ORFs 1 and 2 are probably functional, but this was not the case for a putative third ORF, ORF3.
