  • a Strain produces the rabbitpox virus-like hybridization pattern on the microchip.

  • b Variola virus DNA isolated from human smallpox scabs.

  • c Species identification was performed by conventional methods (host range in animals, morphology of viral pocks produced on CAM, reproductive ceiling temperature in cell culture or on chicken embryo CAM).
