Comments and References:

The virus family, Ascoviridae, to which this virus belongs is a recently
proposed virus family. (1983). The reference in which this virus fi
family was first proposed is PNAS 80:7664-7668 (Federici).
The ascoviruses, including the isolate from which I have submitted sequence,
Spodoptera ascovirus, are a family of dsDNA viruses. The genomes of
the ascoviruses range in size from ca. 140kb to 180 kb and are linear.
The dsDNA genomes of ascovirusesare packaged in large, enveloped virions.
These virions exhibit complex symmetry, have a highly reticulated surface,
and range in shape from reniform to bacilliform.
