Picornavirus Type Classification:
New and Re-classified Types
In order to bring some order
to the creation or re-classification of picornavirus serotypes (or types)
it has been decided that the chairman of the Picornaviridae Study
Group (currently Nick Knowles) should manage new proposals
in consultation with other experts in the field.
We have taken the starting
point of these deliberations as the 7th ICTV Report and therefore changes that
have taken place, or been proposed, since
that book was published are listed here.
Please submit proposals with
supporting information and data
(which will treated as confidential if
requested) using the form below to:
Nick Knowles, The Pirbright Institute,
Ash Road, Pirbright, Woking, Surrey, GU24 0NF, United Kingdom.
