Our understanding of the diversity and evolution of vertebrate RNA viruses is largely limited to those found in mammalian and avian hosts and associated with overt disease. Here, using a large-scale meta-transcriptomic approach, we discover 214 vertebrate-associated viruses in reptiles, amphibians, lungfish, ray-finned fish, cartilaginous fish and jawless fish. The newly discovered viruses appear in every family or genus of RNA virus associated with vertebrate infection, including those… 
The diversity, evolution and origins of vertebrate RNA viruses
Discovery and Characterization of Actively Replicating DNA and Retro-Transcribing Viruses in Lower Vertebrate Hosts Based on RNA Sequencing
TLDR
The results revealed reliable and sufficient information within metatranscriptomics sequencing to characterize not only RNA viruses, but also DNA and retro-transcribing viruses, and therefore established a key methodology that will help to understand the composition and evolution of the total “infectome” within a diverse range of vertebrate hosts.
100-My history of bornavirus infections hidden in vertebrate genomes
TLDR
This study systematically identified EBLs in vertebrate genomes and revealed the history of bornavirus infections over nearly 100 My, confirming that ancient bornaviral infections have occurred in diverse vertebrate lineages, especially in primate ancestors.
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.
Diversity and evolution of the animal virome.
TLDR
The factors that determine the phylogenetic diversity and genomic structure of animal viruses on evolutionary timescales are outlined and how this impacts assessment of the risk of disease emergence in the short term is shown.
Slippery when wet: cross-species transmission of divergent coronaviruses in bony and jawless fish and the evolutionary history of the Coronaviridae
TLDR
Despite possessing a phylogenetic history that likely spans the entire history of the vertebrates, coronavirus evolution has been characterised by relatively frequent cross-species transmission, particularly in hosts that reside in aquatic habitats.
Slippery when wet: cross-species transmission of divergent coronaviruses in bony and jawless fish and the evolutionary history of the Coronaviridae
TLDR
Despite possessing a phylogenetic history that likely spans the entire history of the vertebrates, coronavirus evolution has been characterised by relatively frequent cross-species transmission, particularly in hosts that reside in aquatic habitats.
Cryptic and abundant marine viruses at the evolutionary origins of Earth’s RNA virome
TLDR
Viruses of two candidate phyla are abundant in the ocean and revise the understanding of early RNA virus evolution, as well as identifying RNA viruses that necessitate substantive revisions of taxonomy and evolutionary understanding.
Doubling of the known set of RNA viruses by metagenomic analysis of an aquatic virome
TLDR
Analysis of a single RNA virome from the Yangshan Deep-Water Harbour in China enabled the recovery of more than 4,500 distinct RNA viruses, doubling the known set of RNA viruses to date, and provided insights into their biology.

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.
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.
The evolution, diversity, and host associations of rhabdoviruses
TLDR
It is suggested that throughout their evolution, rhabdoviruses have occasionally jumped between distantly related host species before spreading through related hosts in the same environment, suggesting a way to predict the most probable biology and key traits of newly discovered viruses.
Marine origin of retroviruses in the early Palaeozoic Era
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses suggest that this major retroviral lineage, and therefore retroviruses as a whole, have an ancient marine origin and originated together with, if not before, their jawed vertebrate hosts >450 million years ago in the Ordovician period, early Palaeozoic Era.
Distinct Viral Lineages from Fish and Amphibians Reveal the Complex Evolutionary History of Hepadnaviruses
TLDR
The first amphibian HBV genome, as well as several prototype fish HBVs, are obtained and analyzed, which allow the first comprehensive comparative genomic analysis of hepadnaviruses from four classes of vertebrates, suggesting that structural constraints for proper capsid folding are key to capsid protein evolution.
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.
An Endogenous Foamy-like Viral Element in the Coelacanth Genome
TLDR
It is shown that foamy-like viruses have likely codiverged with their vertebrate hosts for more than 407 million years and underwent an evolutionary transition from water to land with their terrestrial hosts and have important implications in understanding foamy virus biology.
A tick-borne segmented RNA virus contains genome segments derived from unsegmented viral ancestors
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.
Redefining the invertebrate RNA virosphere
TLDR
A view of the RNA virosphere is presented that is more phylogenetically and genomically diverse than that depicted in current classification schemes and provide a more solid foundation for studies in virus ecology and evolution.
Viruses of Lower Vertebrates

TLDR
Viruses of lower vertebrates recently became a field of interest to the public due to increasing epizootics and economic losses of poikilothermic animals and some of the DNA viruses seem to be emerging pathogens involved in the worldwide decline in wildlife.
