Bringing together essential reviews from Microbiology and Journal of General Virology
Microbe Profiles are concise, review-type articles that provide overviews of the classification, structure and properties of novel microbes, written by leading microbiologists, while ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profiles are written by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) study groups, comprised of leading experts in the field. The profiles summarise the individual chapters from the ICTV’s online 10th Report on Virus Taxonomy, and provide the latest taxonomic information on viruses.
