Welcome to the home of Picornaviruses

The picornavirus pages are currently being updated to reflect the latest taxonomic proposals (which are indicated as names within quotation marks).

The family Picornaviridae belongs to the order Picornavirales and currently consists of 54 species grouped into 31 genera. Additionally there are four proposed new genera (each containing a single proposed species) and 24 proposed new species within existing genera.

The Picornaviridae pages have been updated to reflect the new taxonomy approved by the ICTV in March 2014 (based on proposals submitted in 2013) (Adams et al., 2014), February 2015 (based on proposals submitted in 2014) (Adams et al., 2015) and April 2016 (Adams et al., 2016).
