The complete genome sequence of a novel chrysovirus from the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana Vuillemin

Beauveria bassiana, an entomopathogenic fungus, is used for arthropod pest control worldwide. Here, we report the discovery and characterization of a novel double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) mycovirus, Beauveria bassiana chrysovirus 2 (BbCV-2), isolated …

Taxonomy update for the family Alphasatellitidae: new subfamily, genera, and species

Alphasatellites (family Alphasatellitidae) are circular, single-stranded DNA molecules (~1–1.4 kb) that encode a replication-associated protein and have commonly been associated with some members of the families Geminiviridae, Nanoviridae, and …

Olea europaea geminivirus is present in a germplasm repository and in California and Texas olive (Olea europaea L.) groves

Olea europaea geminivirus (OEGV) from olive accessions in Italy was characterized recently. OEGV was also detected during routine high-throughput sequencing screening of olive (cv. Leccino) material, and its complete bipartite genome segments were …

A 2021 taxonomy update for the family Smacoviridae

The family Smacoviridae (order Cremevirales, class Arfiviricetes, phylum Cressdnaviricota) is comprised of viruses with small circular single-stranded DNA genomes of ~2.3-3 kb in length that have primarily been identified in fecal sample of …

Novel viruses belonging to the family Circoviridae identified in wild American wigeon samples

Members of the family Circoviridae are known to infect several avian species, with the ability to cause severe disease outcomes in some species. Using a high-throughput sequencing-informed approach, we identified two novel lineages of …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Archives of Virology publishes original contributions from all branches of research on viruses, virus-like agents, and virus infections of humans, animals, plants, insects, and bacteria. Coverage spans a broad spectrum of topics, from descriptions of newly discovered viruses, to studies of virus structure, composition, and genetics, to studies of virus interactions with host cells, organisms and populations. Studies employ molecular biologic, molecular genetics, and current immunologic and epidemiologic approaches. Contents include studies on the molecular pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and genetics of virus infections in individual hosts, and studies on the molecular epidemiology of virus infections in populations. Also included are studies involving applied research such as diagnostic technology development, monoclonal antibody panel development, vaccine development, and antiviral drug development.Archives of Virology wishes to publish obituaries of recently deceased well-known virologists and leading figures in virology.

Papers describing sequences only will be considered for publication only if the genomic organisation derived from the nucleotide sequence determined differs fundamentally from those of typical members of the virus genus/family and if the biological significance and functions of certain sequence differences have been experimentally expressed. If a manuscript only describes the complete sequence of a virus for which no or only very limited sequence information is available, the manuscript can be considered for submission in the format of an Annotated Sequence Record (see link ‘Annotated Sequence Records’).
