    Cyndy Parr commented on "Image of Ebo sp1-GAB":

    For some reason this spider image is showing up in the EOL Ebolavirus media gallery. It is already in the Taxon Concept management to-do list, but I wanted to leave a message for BOLD that the name Ebo sp1-GAB or its hierarchy may be problematic.

    José-Manuel Echevarría commented on an older version of Hepatitis E virus:

    Hepatitis E virus Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the infective organism that causes hepatitis E. The viral particles are 27 to 34 nanometers in diameter, are non-enveloped and contain a single-strand of positive-sense RNA that is approximately 7300 bases in length. The virus particle was first visualised in 1983[1] but was only molecularly cloned in 1990.[2] HEV was previously classified in the Caliciviridae family. However, its genome more closely resembles the rubella virus. It is now classified within the genus Hepevirus in the Hepeviridae family.[3] Such family includes separate lineages of viruses infecting birds (avian HEV) and mammals. Phylogenetic trees performed with HEV strains isolated worldwide draw four main evolutionary lineages, which represent four viral genotypes [4]. Genotypes 1 and 2 are responsible for epidemics in tropical areas from Asia, Africa and America and have just been found among humans. Genotypes 3 and 4 have never been involved in epidemics and infect other mammals like swine and bovine livestock, wild boar and deer. HEV strains isolated from rabbit might constitute a fifth genotype [5], and strains from rats are considered from a different lineage [6]. References 1.
