Molecular criteria for genus and species discrimination within the family Potyviridae
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the optimised nucleotide (nt) alignment of the entire ORFs of each fully-sequenced species in the family Potyviridae provided strong support for several subgroups within the genus Potyvirus, suggesting that the continuum of variation that is theoretically available is constrained or disrupted by molecular barriers that must have some biological significance.

Family Flexiviridae: a case study in virion and genome plasticity.
TLDR
A common evolutionary ancestor for the family Tymoviridae and the two distinct evolutionary clusters of the Flexiviridae is postulate, i.e., a plant virus with a polyadenylated genome, filamentous virions, and a triple gene block of movement proteins, which would have generated a very diverse group of plant and fungal viruses.

Overview and analysis of the polyprotein cleavage sites in the family Potyviridae.
TLDR
Comprehensive data for all sequences of each virus in the family Potyviridae, together with some summaries, have been made available and a revised series of cleavage sites for Sweet potato mild mottle virus is proposed with a conserved His at the P1 position. Expand
The new plant virus family Flexiviridae and assessment of molecular criteria for species demarcation
The new plant virus family Flexiviridae is described. The family is named because its members have flexuous virions and it includes the existing genera Allexivirus, Capillovirus, Carlavirus,Expand
A universal PCR primer to detect members of the Potyviridae and its use to examine the taxonomic status of several members of the family
TLDR
A universal primer, designed from the consensus sequences that code for the conserved sequence GNNSGQP in the NIb region of members of the family Potyviridae, was used to amplify by RT-PCR the 3′-terminal genome regions from infected plant samples representing 21 different viruses in the family.
