(flā'vī-vī'ri-dē),
A family of enveloped single-stranded positive sense RNA viruses 40-60 mm in diameter formerly classified as the "group B" arboviruses, including yellow fever and dengue viruses; maintained in nature by transmission from arthropod vectors to vertebrate hosts.

According to the reports, the NS protein of Flaviviridae serves principal roles in virus replication and the interaction between hosts and pathogens [6, 7].
The cause of the infection is a Dengue virus from the genus Flaviviridae, of the Togaviridae family.
Dengue virus exists as four antigenically distinct viruses designated as serotypes (DENV-1 through DENV-4), belonging to genus Flavivirus of family Flaviviridae. It has a positive-sense RNA genome that is translated as a single polyprotein and post-translationally cleaved into three structural proteins and seven nonstructural proteins (Henchal & Putnak, 1990).
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an enveloped single stranded RNA virus that represents the type species of the Hepacivirus genus within the Flaviviridae family.
ZIKV itself is a single stranded RNA virus that belongs to the Flaviviridae family, along with YFV, West Nile Virus, Japanese Encephalitis Virus, and DENV.
As dengue and Zika are both part of the Flaviviridae family transmitted through a common mosquito host, the researchers wanted to know how vaccinating for one would affect the incidence of the other.
The virus is closely related to other viruses in the family Flaviviridae such as West Nile, dengue, and yellow fever.
