Current knowledge of RNA virus biodiversity is both biased and fragmentary, reflecting a focus on culturable or disease-causing agents. [...] Key Result Here we profile the transcriptomes of over 220 invertebrate species sampled across nine animal phyla and report the discovery of 1,445 RNA viruses, including some that are sufficiently divergent to comprise new families.Expand
Meta-transcriptomics and the evolutionary biology of RNA viruses
TLDR
Meta-transcriptomics shows that the RNA virus world is more fluid than previously realized, with relatively frequent changes in genome length and structure, and is suggested that proposals for virus classification pay careful attention to the wonders unearthed in this new age of virus discovery. Expand
Metagenomics reshapes the concepts of RNA virus evolution by revealing extensive horizontal virus transfer
TLDR
Comparison of the genome architectures of RNA viruses discovered by metagenomics and by traditional methods reveals an extent of gene module shuffling among diverse virus genomes that far exceeds the previous appreciation of this evolutionary phenomenon. Expand
Hymenoptera associated eukaryotic virome lacks host specificity
TLDR
In this study, viral-like particle enrichment and deep sequencing was deployed to detect viral communities in managed Belgian honey bees, providing important insights on the host taxonomical breadth of some of the known “bee viruses" and might have important implications on strategies to combat viruses that are relevant to pollinators. Expand
High-Resolution Metatranscriptomics Reveals the Ecological Dynamics of Mosquito-Associated RNA Viruses in Western Australia
TLDR
A metatranscriptomics analysis of 12 Western Australian mosquito populations structured by species and geographic location revealed that RNA viruses are some of the most important components of the mosquito transcriptome, and 19 new virus species from a diverse set of virus families are identified. Expand
Abundant and Diverse RNA Viruses in Insects Revealed by RNA-Seq Analysis: Ecological and Evolutionary Implications
TLDR
Novel viruses were found to cover major categories of RNA viruses, and many formed novel clusters divergent from the previously described taxa, dramatically broadening the range of known RNA viruses in insects. Expand
Viromes in marine ecosystems reveal remarkable invertebrate RNA virus diversity.
TLDR
It is revealed that hantaviruses may have a marine origin, and three marine invertebrate hantviruses that are rooted to vertebrate hants are revealed, further supporting that hants may haveA marine origin. Expand
Expansion of the metazoan virosphere: progress, pitfalls, and prospects.
TLDR
In the absence of an isolate, the analysis of nucleic acid (including small RNAs) and sequence data can provide considerable confidence in the existence of a virus from a `virus-like sequence', and this period of molecular natural history is helping to reshape views of deep virus evolution. Expand
Deep Roots and Splendid Boughs of the Global Plant Virome.
TLDR
The recently adopted comprehensive taxonomy of viruses based on phylogenomic analyses, as applied to the plant virome is introduced, and the evolutionary ancestry of distinct plant virus lineages to primordial genetic mobile elements is traced. Expand
Metatranscriptomic Identification of Diverse and Divergent RNA Viruses in Green and Chlorarachniophyte Algae Cultures
TLDR
18 novel RNA viruses in cultured samples from two major groups of microbial algae: the chlorophytes and the chlorarachniophytes are identified, including the first negative-sense (bunya-like) RNA virus in microalgae, as well as a distant homolog of the plant virus Virgaviridae. Expand
Unveiling the RNA virosphere associated with marine microorganisms
TLDR
Results reveal the importance of studying cell fractions to illuminate the full spectrum of viral diversity on Earth and illustrate the magnitude of the previously unknown marine RNA virus population in cell fractions, which has only been partially assessed by cellular metatranscriptomics and not by contemporary viral metagenomic studies.

Divergent Viruses Discovered in Arthropods and Vertebrates Revise the Evolutionary History of the Flaviviridae and Related Viruses
TLDR
The traditional view on the evolutionary history, host range, and genomic structures of a major group of RNA viruses is revised, suggesting that arthropods may be the ultimate reservoir of the Flaviviridae and related viruses, harboring considerable genetic and phenotypic diversity. Expand
Unprecedented genomic diversity of RNA viruses in arthropods reveals the ancestry of negative-sense RNA viruses
TLDR
RNA sequencing of 70 arthropod species revealed that arthropods contain viruses that fall basal to major virus groups, including the vertebrate-specific arenaviruses, filoviruse, hantavirus, influenza viruses, lyssavirusing, and paramyxoviruses. Expand
Endogenous viruses: insights into viral evolution and impact on host biology
TLDR
It is argued that the conflict between hosts and viruses has led to the invention and diversification of molecular arsenals, which, in turn, promote the cellular co-option of endogenous viruses. Expand
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. Expand
The Discovery, Distribution, and Evolution of Viruses Associated with Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The results provide an essential evolutionary and ecological context for host–virus interaction in Drosophila, and the newly reported viral sequences will help develop D. melanogaster further as a model for molecular and evolutionary virus research. Expand
The ancient Virus World and evolution of cells
TLDR
The existence of several genes that are central to virus replication and structure, are shared by a broad variety of viruses but are missing from cellular genomes suggests the model of an ancient virus world, a flow of virus-specific genes that went uninterrupted from the precellular stage of life's evolution to this day. Expand
Virus discovery and recent insights into virus diversity in arthropods
TLDR
Future investigations should include species from other arthropod taxa than Ixodita, Culicidae and Phlebotominae in order to shed light on the true diversity ofArthropod viruses. Expand

TLDR
It is argued persuasively that research in this area is limited by the size and detail of genome databases, combined with relevant epidemiologic and clinical information, such as precise geographic location, exact date of sampling, and transmission dynamics of the disease. Expand
Discovery and Evolution of Bunyavirids in Arctic Phantom Midges and Ancient Bunyavirid-Like Sequences in Insect Genomes
TLDR
The findings indicate that bunyavirid-host interactions in nonbloodsucking arthropods have been much more extensive than previously thought and may offer fresh insight into host reservoirs, potential sources of emerging disease, and major lifestyle shifts in the evolutionary history of viruses in the family Bunyviridae.

TLDR
This work discovered a previously unidentified segmented RNA virus of ticks that, uniquely, contained two segments derived from an unsegmented flavivirus, as well as two highly divergent segments of unknown origin. Expand
