A clash of ideas – the varying uses of the ‘species’ term in virology and their utility for classifying viruses in metagenomic datasets

Abstract:

Species definitions of viruses are frequently descriptive, with assignments often being based on their disease manifestations, host range, geographical distribution and transmission routes. This method of categorizing viruses has recently been challenged by technology advances, such as high-throughput sequencing. These have dramatically increased knowledge of viral diversity in the wider environment that dwarfs the current catalogue of viruses classified by the International Committee for the...
