The Members of the Family Reoviridae
The studies of Gomatos and collaborators in the early 1960s that indicated that the RNA in reovirus particles was double-stranded created a great deal of interest because although dsRNA was at that time under active investigation as the replicative form of viral genomes consisting of single-stranded RNA, they pinpointed for the first time a source of stable dsRNA (Gomatos et al., 1962).
