The ICTV's recommendation for how to write a virus name.
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
You are correct. The use of capitalization and italics as indicated in the article above, is meant for official, ICTV-approved taxon names. Proposed, but not yet approved taxon names should be written as per the guidelines above for writing virus names.
Dear ICTV members,
I have a doubt.
Recently, in an article entitled "A major lineage of non-tailed dsDNA viruses as unrecognized killers of marine bacteria", published online on 24 January 2018, as a Letter in Nature, the authors propose the name of a new family, named Autolykiviridae. In their article, authors uses the name Autolykiviridae in italics for define it as a possible new virus family. Is right to use Autolykiviridae in italics in this case, even when this "new family" is not yet recognized by the ICTV?
