The ICTV's recommendation for how to write species and virus names. (Updated May 28, 2019)
The strain names are provided in the VMR mentioned above.
Please one more thing, my supervisor wants me to use ICTV strain name of specific MSVs in my experiment with their accession number. Please, can you throw more lights on getting this strain name?
This is very clear now.
While the ICTV does not officially define abbreviations for virus species, we do provide recommendations fro abbreviating virus names. These abbreviations are provided in the Virus Metadata Resource (VMR): https://ictv.global/vmr/. For the virus, maize streak virus, the suggested abbreviations are MSV/A through MSV/J and MSV/X depending on the virus isolate. The VMR provides GenBank accession numbers linking each virus and abbreviation to the sequence record of the corresponding virus strain. MSV/A is the abbreviation for the exemplar virus (South Africa/A) of the species.
Thank you very much. Would it be official to abbreviate as MSV-A or MSV/A?
When referring to the species, the correct way to write the name would be: "The species Maize streak virus belongs to the genus Mastrevirus...".
Please, how do I write the official ICTV name for Maize streak virus, for instance? I could see it's still same thing.
Thank you very much. It make me clear.
The ICTV does not have any specific rules for handwritten text. Example number 1 above would probably be my personal preference. Just be sure that the underline is replaced with italics if the text is printed.
in case of writing on the paper by hand . I can not write italic, what should I do about underline
There is no need to underline a virus name. Virus taxon names should be italicized.
Dear all I have some question about how to write virus name on paper how to underline on the name or noneed to underline
Tomato yellow leaf curl virus 1
Tomato yellow leaf curl virus 2 which number is betterThank you
The ICTV Study Group recommends using TBRFV as the abbreviation for Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (see https://talk.ictvonline.org/ictv-reports/ictv_online_report/positive-sense-rna-viruses/w/virgaviridae/672/genus-tobamovirus). But keep in mind that this is just a recommendation. The ICTV does not officially endorse virus name abbreviations.
Esteemed virologists, ask them what is the correct form of Tomato brown rugose fruit virus: TBRFV or ToBRFVI appreciate your comments
