Viral Group V
| Barnaviridae, Varicosavirus|
Ophioviridae is a family of viruses characterized by an elongated and highly filamentous and flexible nucleocapsid with helical symmetry.
The protein capsid is non-enveloped and has a constant diameter of 1500–2500 nm and a width of 3 nm, or 9 nm. The capsids form kinked circles, which can collapse to form linear duplex structures, much like a spring.
The entire genome is 1100–1200 nucleotides long.
The family has one genus, Ophiovirus, which has six recognized species. Members of both the family and the genus are referred to as ophioviruses.Order Unassigned
