Abstract

The family includes dsDNA viruses that have been associated with marine archaea. Currently, members of this virus family are known through metagenomics. Virions are predicted to consist of an icosahedral capsid and a helical tail, characteristic of members in the class . Aoguangviruses have some of the largest genomes among archaeal viruses and possess most of the components of the DNA replication machinery as well as auxiliary functions. The family includes the species . Many unclassified relatives of this virus group, referred to as ‘magroviruses’, have been discovered by metagenomics in globally distributed marine samples. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the family , which is available at ictv.global/report/aoguangviridae.
