Gene sequence comparisons and protein comparisons provide more and more evidence that evolutionary links exist between plant and animal RNA viruses, irrespective of whether they have an isometric or rod-shaped particle, or of whether they have a divided or non-divided genome. Although a phylogeny based on these molecular data cannot yet be constructed the results obtained so far shed a new light on the origin and evolution of RNA viruses and are important in terms of their taxonomy.
