Beauveria bassiana is a ubiquitous entomopathogen infecting hundreds of insect species. We have determined the genomic organization and the complete nucleotide sequence of a novel virus isolated from the isolate A24 of B. bassiana. Phylogenetic analysis of the polymerase gene reveals that the virus, tentatively named Beauveria bassiana virus 1, belongs to the family Amalgaviridae and represents a distinct lineage of amalgaviruses infecting fungi. 
Molecular characterization of a novel mycovirus from the plant pathogenic fungus Colletotrichum gloeosporioides
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on the RdRp sequence showed that CgRV1 clustered with and is closely related to unclassified mycoviruses that are distinct from members of the family Partitiviridae. Expand
A novel mycovirus isolated from the plant-pathogenic fungus Alternaria dianthicola
TLDR
This is the first report of mycovirus infecting A. dianthicola, and based on the RdRp, AdRV1 is phylogenetically related to some unclassified dsRNAs, including Alternaria longipes dsRNA virus 1, and shows a distant relationship to members of the family Partitiviridae. Expand
Studies on the Virome of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Beauveria bassiana Reveal Novel dsRNA Elements and Mild Hypervirulence
TLDR
A comparison of virus-free and virus-infected isogenic lines derived from an exemplar B. bassiana isolate revealed a mild hypervirulent effect of mycoviruses on the growth of their host isolate and on its pathogenicity against the greater wax moth Galleria mellonella, highlighting for the first time the potential of myCovirus as enhancers of biocontrol agents.

TLDR
Results suggest that mycoviruses are common in P. lilacinum, and indicate that this virus might belong to a new taxon related to the family Partitiviridae. Expand
Complete genome sequence of a novel partitivirus from the entomogenous fungus Beauveria bassiana in China
TLDR
It is proposed that Beauveria bassiana partitivirus 3 is a novel member of the proposed genus Epsilonpartitiv virus, which is derived from the entomogenous fungus BeauverIA bassiana isolate RCEF5853 from China. Expand
The Polymycovirus-Mediated Growth Enhancement of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Beauveria bassiana Is Dependent on Carbon and Nitrogen Metabolism
TLDR
The effects of polymycoviruses on B. bassiana are at least partially mediated via its metabolic pathways, as shown by the complete sequence of BbPmV-3, which has six genomic dsRNA segments. Expand
Amalga-like virus infecting Antonospora locustae, a microsporidian pathogen of grasshoppers, plus related viruses associated with other arthropods.
TLDR
It is speculated that this second new amalga-like virus (contig length, 3475 nt) likely also derived from a microsporidian, or related organism, which was associated with the springtail specimens at the time of sampling for transcriptome analysis, and other findings of interest include evidence that the ORF1 translation products of these two newAmalgaviruses contain a central region of predicted α-helical coiled coil.

Identification of a novel plant RNA virus species of the genus Amalgavirus in the family Amalgaviridae from chia (Salvia hispanica)
TLDR
ShRV1 is a novel virus found to be associated with chia and may be useful for studying the molecular features of amalgaviruses. Expand
A novel nonsegmented double-stranded RNA mycovirus identified in the phytopathogenic fungus Nigrospora oryzae shows similarity to partitivirus-like viruses
TLDR
The isolation of a novel mycovirus from N. oryzae infecting rice was reported and the complete genome sequence and genomic organization of this virus, which was named NoNRV1, revealed that it was most similar to the Ustilaginoidea virens nonsegmented virus 1 (UvNV-1) and distantly related to members of the virus family Partitiviridae. Expand
Small RNA-Based Antiviral Defense in the Phytopathogenic Fungus Colletotrichum higginsianum
TLDR
RNA silencing involving ChDCL1 and ChAGO1 in C. higginsianum is proposed to function as an antiviral mechanism and a close relationship between ChNRV1 and members of the segmented Partitiviridae family was shown, despite the non-segmented nature of the genome. Expand
