Ratification vote on taxonomic proposals to the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2016)
This article lists the changes to virus taxonomy approved and ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) in April 2016.Changes to virus taxonomy (the Universal Scheme of
Changes to taxonomy and the International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2018)
This article lists the changes to virus taxonomy approved and ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses in February 2018. A total of 451 species, 69 genera, 11 subfamilies, 9
TAXONOMIC REVISION OF THE FAMILY CLOSTEROVIRIDAE WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE GRAPEVINE LEAFROLL-ASSOCIATED MEMBERS OF THE GENUS AMPELOVIRUS AND THE PUTATIVE SPECIES UNASSIGNED TO THE FAMILY
TLDR
A comparative examination of the amino acid sequence divergence of three taxonomically relevant genes supports the notion that they are all genetically divergent variants of a single species, GLRaV-4, and the establishment of a fourth genus within the family Closteroviridae is justified.
Changes to taxonomy and the International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2017)
This article lists the changes to virus taxonomy approved and ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) in March 2017.
The remarkable evolutionary history of endornaviruses.
TLDR
Based on the conserved domain database comparison the various domains have different origins, indicating a highly modular evolutionary history, and domains with similar putative functions are found that are derived from different protein families, indicating convergent evolution for a required function.
Viruses and Virus Diseases of Rubus.
TLDR
The goals of this article are to update the knowledge on previously characterized viruses of Rubus, highlight recently described viruses, review the virus-induced symptoms, describe the advances made in their detection, and discuss the knowledge about several virus complexes that cause serious diseases in Rubus.
The family Tymoviridae
TLDR
The family Tymoviridae comprises the genus Tymvirus, from which it derives its name, the genus Marafivirus and the newly established genus Maculavirus, which contains one tentative species.
Consensus statement: Virus taxonomy in the age of metagenomics
TLDR
The rationale for why metagenomic sequence data should, and how it can, be incorporated into the ICTV taxonomy is considered, and present proposals that have been endorsed by the Executive Committee of the ITV.
Molecular characterization of two evolutionarily distinct endornaviruses co-infecting common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris).
TLDR
Two high-molecular-mass dsRNAs isolated from the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) cultivar Black Turtle Soup did not appear to cause obvious disease symptoms, and were transmitted through seeds at nearly 100% efficiency.
