Complete genome sequence of a German isolate of spartina mottle virus supports its classification as a member of the proposed genus “Sparmovirus” within the family Potyviridae

Spartina mottle virus (SpMV), an unassigned member of the family Potyviridae, has been known since 1980, when it was first described in England and Wales in symptomatic plants of the genus Spartina. In infected cells, flexuous particles and …

Transmission studies of the newly described apple chlorotic fruit spot viroid using a combined RT-qPCR and droplet digital PCR approach

The transmission of the apscaviroid tentatively named apple chlorotic fruit spot viroid (ACFSVd) was investigated using a one-step reverse-transcription (RT) droplet digital PCR assay for absolute quantification of the viroid, followed by …

Resistance-associated substitutions (RASs) to HCV direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) at baseline of treatment in thalassemia patients: a referral center study

Patients with thalassemia major are at high risk of hepatitis C through blood transfusion from donors infected by hepatitis C virus (HCV). The use of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy against such HCV infections has increased in different …

Clinical evaluation of an in-house-developed real-time RT-PCR assay for serotyping of dengue virus

In the present study, an in-house-developed real-time RT-PCR (rRT-PCR) for serotyping of dengue virus (DENV) was evaluated for its performance, using 612 clinical samples. Compared to the composite reference standard, the in-house-developed …

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’).
