Virus Taxonomy – 1999 Virology Division News 421 Arch Virol 144/2 (1999) Virology Division News VDN The Universal System of Virus Taxonomy, updated to include the new proposals ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses during 1998 C. R. Pringle Department of Biological Sciences, University of Warwick, Coventry, U.K. A condensed version of the Universal System of Virus Taxonomy was published in Virology Division News at the beginning of 1998 [7]. Since then, several new taxonomic proposals from Study Groups have been considered by the Executive Committee of the International Committee on Virus Taxonomy (ICTV) [8]. These proposals have now been ratified by postal ballot of the full membership of the ICTV, as required by the Statutes of the ICTV. The Table below presents the current revision of the Universal System of Virus Taxonomy, including all the new taxonomic proposals ratified by the ICTV since publica- tion of the Sixth Report in 1995 [5]. This condensed version of the Universal Taxonomy lists Orders, Families, Genera and Type species, but does not extend to the listing of approved virus species. The complete taxonomy will be published as the Seventh Report of the ICTV prior to the Eleventh International Congress of Virology in Archives of Virology Springer Journals
