Re·o·vir·i·dae

(rē'ō-vir'i-dē),
A family of double-stranded RNA viruses, some of which (Reovirus) previously were included with Echoviruses, and others (Orbivirus), with arboviruses. Virions are 60-80 nm in diameter, usually naked, and ether resistant; genomes contain double-stranded, segmented RNA (MW 10-16 × 106); capsids are of icosohedral symmetry with two layers of capsomeres. The family comprises nine genera: Orthoreovirus, Orbivirus, Rotavirus, Coltivirus, Aquareovirus, cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus group (Cypovirus), and three plant reovirus groups (Phytoreovirus, Fijivirus, and Oryzavirus).

Avian orthoreoviruses are nonenveloped, double-stranded RNA viruses that belong to the genus Orthoreovirus in the family Reoviridae. (2) Although they are not always pathogenic, avian reoviruses may cause serious disease in birds, especially in poultry.
The viruses were classified as members of the Reoviridae, Phytoreoviridae, Rhabdoviridae, and Dicistroviridae.
The major arbovirus families are the Togaviridae (the genus Alphavirus), Flaviviridae (the genus Flavivirus), Bunyaviridae (all genera except Hantavirus), and Reoviridae (the genera Coltivirus and Orbivirus).
Rotaviruses are double stranded RNA viruses comprising a genus within the family Reoviridae. The mature virus particles are triple layered, approximately 70 nm in diameter, and possess icosahedral symmetry.
The many types and subtypes of RV form the genus Rotavirus in the Reoviridae family.
