ICTV virus taxonomy profile: Rhabdoviridae

Academic Article


  • © 2018, Microbiology Society. All rights reserved. The family Rhabdoviridae comprises viruses with negative-sense (–) single-stranded RNA genomes of 10.8–16.1 kb. Virions are typically enveloped with bullet-shaped or bacilliform morphology but can also be non-enveloped filaments. Rhabdoviruses infect plants and animals including mammals, birds, reptiles and fish, as well as arthropods which serve as single hosts or act as biological vectors for transmission to animals or plants. Rhabdoviruses include important pathogens of humans, livestock, fish and agricultural crops. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the taxonomy of Rhabdoviridae, which is available at www.ictv.global/report/rhabdoviridae.
