  Filoviridae
Comparison of Filoviridae genomes with other Mononegavirales demonstrates a similar structure and suggest comparable mechanisms of transcription and replication.
Comparative sequence analyses of single genes indicate that Filoviridae are phylogenetically quite distinct from other families of the order Mononegavirales.
Limited homology exists between the carboxy terminal part of Filoviridae GP and the transmembrane p15E-related glycoproteins of oncogenic retroviruses.

 Introduction
This virus belongs to the Family Filoviridae, a group of RNA viruses.
One hypothesis is that a wild rodent is the carrier of the deadly virus, as is the case with Lassa fever, a close relative of Filoviridae.
Members of Filoviridae are ranked among the deadliest viruses in existence.

In Wesker's Report II, he talks about the research that Umbrella was doing into the Filoviridae family, which includes the notorious viruses Marburg and Ebola.
This would mean that the Tyrant Virus, and also its sister, the G-virus, would come from that research, and also be in the Filoviridae family.
This page will discuss the T and G-viruses, and the Nemesis Parasite, as well as the viruses that are their sisters, Marburg and the four strains of Ebola; Sudan, Zaire, Reston and Ivory Coast.

The Filoviridae family of viruses is composed of two specific strains: Marburg and Ebola.
Although the diseases associated with these pathogens are very serious and life threatening, little is known about their origin.
Ebola was later characterized in 1976 and was placed in the Filoviridae family.

 eMedicine - Ebola Virus : Article by John W King, MD
Although agents of the viral hemorrhagic fever syndrome constitute a geographically diverse group of viruses, to date, all are RNA viruses, all are considered zoonoses, all damage the microvasculature resulting in increased vascular permeability, and all are members of 1 of 4 families: Arenaviridae, Bunyaviridae, Flaviviridae, and Filoviridae.
Ebola and Marburg viruses are responsible for well-documented outbreaks of severe human hemorrhagic fever with resultant case mortality rates ranging from 23% for Marburg virus (Marburg, Germany; 1967) to 88% for Ebola virus (Yambuku, Democratic Republic of the Congo [DRC]; formerly Zaire; 1976).
The 4 distinguishable subtypes of Ebola and the single subtype of Marburg virus comprise the known members of the family Filoviridae.

The viruses that make up Filoviridae are responsible for causing severe hemorrhagic fever in humans and nonhuman primates.
While Ebola-Reston is not known to cause severe disease in humans, the other three are known to be extremely lethal with mortality rates as high as 88% (Ebola Zaire, 1976).
Molecular Background: Filoviridae consists of a group of viruses that have single-stranded RNA, negative polarity, and monopartite nucleic acid.

 Ebola
Ebola belongs to a family of viruses entitled Filoviridae, and is commonly classified as a viral hemorrhagic fever (CDC, 2002).
Viral hemorrhagic fever commonly describes a medical scenario in which multiple organ systems of the body are affected as well as extensive internal hemorrhaging (bleeding) (WHO,2000).
Ebola along with the Marburg virus are the only viruses identified in the Filoviridae family (CDC,2002).

Filoviridae is a family of RNA-containing viruses that has the Ebola virus and the Marburg virus as its primary members; all cause hemorrhagic fever.
These viruses, which are all native to Africa, are the largest known negative strand RNA viruses and have a diameter of about 80 nanometers.
