Detection of Badnavirus in pineapple in northeastern Brazil

The results suggest the widespread of PBCoV in Northeastern Brazil and record the first report of Badnavirus in pineapple culture in Brazil.

Major Capsid Protein Synthesis from the Genomic RNA of Feline Calicivirus

This work shows for the first time that a member of the genus Vesivirus also has a translation initiation mechanism by which a precursor protein of the VP1 protein is expressed from the genomic RNA.

Letea Virus: Comparative Genomics and Phylogenetic Analysis of a Novel Reassortant Orbivirus Discovered in Grass Snakes (Natrix natrix)

The phylogenetic associations warrant further screening of arthropods, as well as sustained surveillance efforts for elucidation of Letea virus natural cycle and possible implications for animal and human health.

Complete genomic sequence of crow-dipper mosaic-associated virus, a novel macluravirus infecting Pinellia ternata

Results suggest that CrdMV should be considered a distinct member of the genus Macluravirus, well below the species demarcation threshold for the family Potyviridae.

Complete genome sequence and phylogenetic analysis of a novel aquareovirus isolated from a diseased marbled eel (Anguilla marmorata)

Phylogenetic analysis based on the sequences of structural proteins indicated that MERV shows an evolutionary history between AQRV-B and -G, which belong to the saline and freshwater environment subgroups, respectively, and the taxonomic assignments and evolution of AQRVs thus warrant further investigation.

Identification and characterization of water chestnut Soymovirus-1 (WCSV-1), a novel Soymovirus in water chestnuts (Eleocharis dulcis)

This is the first discovery of a dsDNA virus in the genus Soymovirus infecting water chestnuts and adds new information towards a better understanding of the co-evolutionary mechanisms between the virus and its natural plant host.

Evaluation of the genomic diversity of viruses infecting bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes using a common bioinformatic platform: steps towards a unified taxonomy

The findings support the planned shift away from traditional morphology-based classifications of prokaryotic viruses towards a genome-based taxonomy and demonstrate the feasibility of a unified taxonomy of viruses into which the vast body of metagenomic viral sequences may be consistently assigned.

Studies on Groundnut rosette disease in Ghana and genomic analysis of a novel Phasey bean virus in Australia

The sources of resistance to GRV and possibly GRAV and GRSV identified in this study could be exploited in groundnut breeding programs.

Advanced Virological and Clinicopathological Studies On Cattle Suffering From Foot and Mouth Disease Virus

The investigation showed the presence of FMDV type O, A and SAT2 in the studied areas of delta governorates, and it is important to focus on producing of vaccines which have only these serotypes as solution to get rid of the endemic behavior of F MDV in delta of Egypt.

Retention and topology of the bovine viral diarrhea virus glycoprotein E2.

Here, E2 of the bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) strain CP7 was used to study the membrane topology and intracellular localization of the protein and revealed a modulating effect on retention through the cytoplasmic tail of the E2 protein.
