Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2016
The updated taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV).

It is shown that the Culex orthologue of Vago (CxVago) is up-regulated in response to WNV infection in a Dicer-2–dependent manner and appears to function as an IFN-like antiviral cytokine in mosquitoes.
Phylogenetic relationships among rhabdoviruses inferred using the L polymerase gene.

The broad phylogenetic relationships among these groups and genera indicate that the evolutionary history of rhabdoviruses was strongly influenced by mode of transmission, host species, and vector (orthopteran, homopteran or dipteran).
Emerging viral diseases of fish and shrimp
This review examines the rise and characteristics of aquaculture, the major viral pathogens of fish and shrimp and their impacts, and the particular characteristics of disease emergence in an aquatic, rather than terrestrial, context.
Gill-associated virus of Penaeus monodon prawns: an invertebrate virus with ORF1a and ORF1b genes related to arteri- and coronaviruses.
In vitro transcription/translation analysis demonstrated that the GAV element also facilitates read-through of the ORF1a/1b junction, suggesting that GAV represents the first invertebrate member of the Order NIDOVIRALES.
A yellow head-like virus from Penaeus monodon-cultured in Australia
The morphology and cytopathology of GAV closely resemble that observed for lymphoid organ virus (LOV) from Australia and yellow-head virus (YHV) from Thailand, and molecular data are required to determine the phylogenetic relationships and appropriate taxonomic classification of these 3 prawn viruses.
High variation in repetitive DNA fragment length for white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) isolates in Thailand.
Surprisingly high variation in the number of 54 bp DNA repeats in ORF94 is found from 55 shrimp ponds experiencing WSSV outbreaks in Thailand in 2000 and 2002, which may be useful for epidemiological studies on the local and global movement of W SSV.
Changes to virus taxonomy and the Statutes ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2020)
ICTV has approved a proposal that extends the previously established realm Riboviria to encompass nearly all RNA viruses and reverse-transcribing viruses, and approved three separate proposals to establish three realms for viruses with DNA genomes.
Epidemiology and control of bovine ephemeral fever
Current knowledge of the virus, including its molecular and antigenic structure, and the epidemiology of the disease across its entire geographic range are reviewed, including the effectiveness of vaccination and other strategies to prevent or control infection.
Changes to virus taxonomy and the International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2019)
The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) has approved, by an absolute majority, the creation of the realm Riboviria, a likely monophyletic group encompassing all viruses with positive-strand, negative- Strand and double-Strand genomic RNA that use cognate RNA-directed RNA polymerases for replication.
