Recently, nematode viruses infecting Caenorhabditis elegans have been reported from the family Nodaviridae, the first nematode viruses described. Here, we report the observation of a novel endogenous viral element (EVE) in the genome of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, a plant parasitic nematode unrelated to other nematodes from which viruses have been characterised. This element derives from a different clade of nodaviruses to the previously reported nematode viruses. This represents the first… 
Novel RNA viruses within plant parasitic cyst nematodes
TLDR
Five single-stranded RNA viruses have now been confirmed within the economically important soybean cyst nematode (SCN; Heterodera glycines), and two previously undiscovered viral-like genomes are identified and named.
A novel picornavirus-like genome from transcriptome sequencing of sugar beet cyst nematode represents a new putative genus.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the predicted SBC NV1 RdRp amino acid sequence indicated that the SBCNV1 sequence is most closely related to members of the family Secoviridae, which includes genera of nematode-transmitted plant-infecting viruses.
Non-canonical nematode endogenous retroviruses resulting from RNA virus glycoprotein gene capture by a metavirus.
TLDR
NERVs constitute a new and distinct Metaviridae lineage demonstrating retroviral evolution through sequential heterologous gene capture events, and support potential infectivity of NERVs, along with their recent emergence and integration.
Meta-analysis suggests evidence of novel stress-related pathway components in Orsay virus - Caenorhabditis elegans viral model
TLDR
This study shows that novel molecular pathway components, of viral innate immune response, can be identified and provides models that can be further used as a framework for experimental studies.
The diversity, structure and function of heritable adaptive immunity sequences in the Aedes aegypti genome
TLDR
A global view of EVEs and piRNA responses demonstrates the ubiquity and diversity of these heritable elements that define small-RNA mediated antiviral immunity in mosquitoes.

TLDR
Surprisingly, some reverse-transcribed riboviral DNAs provide physiological functions for their hosts, suggesting the occurrence of novel interactions among eukaryotic genomes, retrotransposons and riboviruses, and opening the door to new avenues of investigation.
Long-read assembly of the Aedes aegypti genome reveals the nature of heritable adaptive immunity sequences
The Aedes aegypti mosquito is a major vector for arboviruses including dengue, chikungunya and zika. Combating the spread of these viruses requires a more complete understanding of mosquito-virus

Discovery and initial analysis of novel viral genomes in the soybean cyst nematode.
TLDR
It is shown that one plant parasitic nematodes species, Heterodera glycines, the soybean cyst nematode (SCN), harbours four different RNA viruses that are distantly related to nyaviruses and bornavIRuses, rhabdoviruses, bunyaviraluses and tenuiviruses.
Complete Genome Sequence of Le Blanc Virus, a Third Caenorhabditis Nematode-Infecting Virus
TLDR
Identification of a third virus capable of infecting Caenorhabditis nematodes enables comparative analysis of this clade of viruses and strengthens this model for investigating virus-host interactions.
Genomic Insights into the Origin of Parasitism in the Emerging Plant Pathogen Bursaphelenchus xylophilus
TLDR
A high-quality draft genome sequence from an inbred line of B. xylophilus is presented, and the lack of proteins homologous to effectors from other plant parasitic nematodes confirms the distinctive molecular basis of plant parasitism in the Bursaphelenchus lineage.
A noda-like virus isolated from the sweetpotato pest spodoptera eridania (Cramer) (Lep.; noctuidae)
TLDR
A small isometric virus has been isolated from larvae of the sweetpotato pest Spodoptera eridania (Cramer) collected near Pariacoto, Ancash province, Peru, and it was confirmed that viral replication occurs in the cytoplasm.
Crystal structure of a nematode-infecting virus
TLDR
The crystal structure of an Orsay virus-like particle assembled from recombinant capsid protein (CP) reveals substantial differences compared with the insect-infecting alphanodaviruses, and suggests that the N-terminal arm is important for capsid stability and genome packaging.
The Evolution of Endogenous Viral Elements
Endogenous Viral Elements in Animal Genomes
TLDR
It is established that genetic material derived from all known viral genome types and replication strategies can enter the animal germ line, greatly broadening the scope of paleovirological studies and indicating a more significant evolutionary role for gene flow from virus to animal genomes than has previously been recognized.
Transcriptional and morphological changes in the transition from mycetophagous to phytophagous phase in the plant-parasitic nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus.
TLDR
Results suggest that B. xylophilus may change its physiology and morphology to protect itself and to adapt to the host pine wood environment.
The evolution of novel fungal genes from non-retroviral RNA viruses
TLDR
The findings reveal that horizontal gene transfer can result in novel gene formation in eukaryotes despite miniaturized genomic targets and a need for co-option of reverse transcriptase.
