 Hello everyone:
   I'm a graduated student in Taiwan, R.O.C. Since I'm studying
 on Infectious Laryngotracheitis Virus (ILTV) of chichen, I have 
 searched against the  Genbank and other databases for my research. 
 The question raised that both Marek's disease virus (MDV), 
 Herpesvirus of Turkey (HVT), and  ILTV were thought to be Gallid
 herpesvirus 1 (GHV 1) in the databases and I got lots of MDV and HVT
 sequences while I'm searching for ILTV sequences. 
   According to the classification by International Committe for
 the Taxonomy of Viruses Herpesvirus Study Group, ILTV is GHV 1,
 MDV serotype 1 & 2 are GHV 2 & 3, and HVT is Meleagrid herpesvirus 1.
 Can anyboby who working on MDV or other herpesviruses explain why 
 GHV 1 were used to describe those 4 different viruses for me?
