The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses(ICTV)has the decree to set the rules for the classification and naming of viruses.The species is the lowest level considered in the taxonomic hierarchy.In general,virus species are named according to the structure"and the word‘virus’".A typical example is Tobacco mosaic virus[Genus:To- 
An Innovative Application of Virus Taxonomy and Nomenclatures in the Information Technology
The research idea presented here is to use invisibility of virus as a data carrier and data itself to use virus taxonomy as an encryption tool that is using the existing communication system with the proposed encryption technique. Expand
Penta-1,4-Diene-3-One Oxime Derivatives Strongly Inhibit the Replicase Domain of Tobacco Mosaic Virus: Elucidation Through Molecular Docking and Density Functional Theory Mechanistic Computations
Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is one of the major concerns to the farmers as it infects several crops of economic importance such as tomato. The mechanism of viral infection in host initiates on theExpand


Virus taxonomy: classification and nomenclature of viruses. Seventh report of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.
This report builds on the accumulated taxonomic construction of the eight previous reports dating back to 1971 and records the proceedings of the Committee since publication of the last report in 2005. Expand
Virus nomenclature below the species level: a standardized nomenclature for natural variants of viruses assigned to the family Filoviridae
Adoption of this nomenclature would counter the increasing confusion in genetic variant naming due to the identification of ever more sequences through technological breakthroughs in high-throughput sequencing and environmental sampling and improve figures such as phylograms, alignments, and diagrams.
