Hello all, I'm new here. What are the basic steps for naming a virus?
I have already read the ICTV rules that are based on order, class, genus, species etc. But, I find it confusing.
I really need help, because I'm writing a paper about a hypothetical virus from outer space.
Do I give it any name and then classify it according to ICTV rules? Little confused, because I want it to be scientifically accurate.
