  1. 1Names and abbreviations are usually derived from the original publications although some have been modified to conform to a three letter code derived from the first letter of the genus and the first two letters of the species, ie. Macaca mulatta = Mmu. This was necessary due to the number of different viral species and hosts which could not be distinguished with a two letter code.
