Taxonomy

Group: dsDNA

[2]

Structure

Viruses in Nudiviridae are enveloped, with rod-shaped geometries. Genomes are circular.[1]

Life cycle

Viral replication is nuclear. DNA-templated transcription is the method of transcription. The virus exits the host cell by nuclear envelope breakdown, and nuclear pore export. Insects and marine crustaceans serve as the natural host. Transmission routes are parental and sexual.[1]
