    J Virol 88:8783-94. 2014
    ..Our findings indicate that bunyavirid-host interactions in nonbloodsucking arthropods have been much more extensive than previously thought...

    ..In contrast, other paleoviruses in this group seem to be unique to specific host lineages and even contain undisrupted open reading frames, suggesting either more recent acquisition, or selective maintenance. ..

    Matthew J Ballinger
    Department of Biological Sciences, The State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY 14260, USA
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 65:251-8. 2012
    ..We present the first account of sigma virus-like NIRVs and the first example of NIRV expression in a model animal system, and therefore provide a platform for further study of the possible functions of NIRVs in animal hosts...
  4. pmc Evolutionary maintenance of filovirus-like genes in bat genomes
    Derek J Taylor
    Department of Biological Sciences, The State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY 14260, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 11:336. 2011
    ..We also estimated the age of filovirus VP35-like gene integrations and tested the phylogenetic hypotheses that there is a eutherian mammal clade and a marsupial/ebolavirus/Marburgvirus dichotomy for filoviruses...
  5. pmc Virus-host co-evolution under a modified nuclear genetic code
    Derek J Taylor
    Department of Biological Sciences, The State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, USA
    Peerj 1:e50. 2013
    ..Viral avoidance of the host's modified codon and host co-option of a protein from totiviruses suggest that RNA viruses co-evolved with yeasts that underwent a major evolutionary transition from the standard genetic code...
