Interpretive Summary: This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) report on the taxonomy of the Virgaviridae. This family of plant viruses contains many important plant pathogens. It also contains Tobacco mosaic virus, the first virus of any type to be discovered and described.
Technical Abstract: The family Virgaviridae is comprised of plant-infecting viruses with rod-shaped particles, single stranded RNA genomes with 3' terminal tRNA-like structures, and replication proteins typical of alphalike viruses. Differences in the number of genome components, genome organization and transmission mode provide the basis for genus demarcation. This family contains important plant pathogens including Tobacco mosaic virus, the first virus ever described.
