The ICTV's recommendation for how to write species and virus names. (Updated May 28, 2019)
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
There is no need to underline a virus name. Virus taxon names should be italicized.
in case of writing on the paper by hand . I can not write italic, what should I do about underline
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.
Thank you very much. It make me clear.
