Pisuviricota

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Pisuviricota
Virus classification e
(unranked): Virus
Realm: Riboviria
Kingdom: Orthornavirae
Phylum: Pisuviricota

Pisuviricota is a phylum of RNA viruses, which includes all positive-strand and double-stranded RNA viruses, which infect eukaryotes and are not members of the phylum Kitrinoviricota, Lenarviricota, or Duplornaviricota.[1] The name of the group is a portmanteau of “picornavirus supergroup” and -viricota which is the suffix for a virus phylum.[2] Phylogenetic analyses suggest that Birnaviridae and Permutotetraviridae, both currently unassigned to a phylum in Orthornavirae, also belong to this phylum and that both are sister groups.[3]
