Sample text

A few viruses require the presence of another virus for their replication. B. Are Viruses Alive? This question is asked very frequently. ” While viruses reproduce and adapt, they are not cellular and do not metabolise; they rely on their host cell metabolism. Thus, technically they are not living organisms and the term virus life cycle should not be used; virus replication cycle describes the making of a new virus particle from an input particle. IV. CLASSIFICATION AND NOMENCLATURE OF VIRUSES In all studies of natural objects, humans seem to have an innate desire to name and to classify everything.

A virus defined in this way is essentially a species in the sense suggested for angiosperms and defined by the ICTV. In 1991, the ICTV accepted the concept that viruses exist as species, adopting the following definition: A viral species is a polythetic class of viruses that constitutes a replicating lineage and occupies a particular ecological niche. ] The species has formed the basis of modern virus classification being established in subsequent ICTV reports, especially the seventh and eighth, in which a List of Species-Demarcating Criteria is provided for each genus.

Report. However, the year 2000 report limited its use to certain DNA viruses with bacilliform particles excluding Rice tungro bacilliform virus. As will be apparent in this book, it is necessary to distinguish the reverse transcribing DNA viruses that have isometric particles from those that have bacilliform particles; the informal usage will be caulimoviruses for the former and badnaviruses for the latter. 5 EXAMPLE OF VIRUS CLASSIFICATION, NOMENCLATURE AND ORTHOGRAPHY Taxa Example Suffix Order Mononegavirales -virales Family Rhabdoviridae -viridae Subfamily V.
