Welcome back to Keeping up With Virus Taxonomy. The ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profiles of Simuloviridae and Poxviridae were both published in the Journal of General Virology this year, but that’s not the only thing they have in common: their genomes are both in the form of double stranded deoxyribonucleic acid or dsDNA. Let’s take a look at them and some other viruses whose genomes are in this structure for this edition of ‘Keeping up With Virus Taxonomy’.

Way back in the February instalment of Keeping up With Virus Taxonomy, we looked into viruses that infect fungi... So it’s about time we looked into viruses that infect bacteria. Otherwise known as bacteriophages, viruses that infect bacteria are composed of proteins and a DNA or RNA genome that can be very simple, containing four genes, or complex, with hundreds of genes. You can learn more about phages here.

Today, the word ‘coronavirus’ has become a part of everyone’s daily vocabulary. It’s difficult to believe that 60 years ago the very existence of these viruses was disputed by experts, with the first images of coronavirus written off as badly imaged influenza. Now, as the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 continues to change the world as we know it, the history of coronaviruses is being revisited.
