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.

In our last instalment of ‘Keeping up with virus taxonomy’ we explored the little-known viruses that infect fungi. For this new instalment we will explore some of the distinct virus families that many of you will have heard of; viruses that cause haemorrhagic fevers in humans.
