The International Catalog of Arboviruses Including Certain Viruses of Vertebrates lists 545 viruses that are known or suspected to be arthropod-borne as well as viruses with ‘no known vector’. Many of the viruses in the catalog infect and replicate in vertebrates other than humans and livestock. Arboviruses circulate in nature, going largely unnoticed until they produce disease in humans and/or domestic animals or wildlife. Of the 545 viruses listed in the catalog, 134 are known to cause human disease.

GþC content), and oncogenicity in vivo and in vitro (the latter indicated by malignant transformation in tissue culture). Four hemagglutination groups (I–IV) and six human adenovirus subgroups (A–F) were established. In the most recent taxonomy, the latter groups, which were often referred to as subgroups or subgenera, are now correctly termed species Human adenovirus A (abbreviated informally to HAdV-A) through Human adenovirus F (HAdV-F). Phylogenetic analyses of nucleotide and protein sequences and characteristic features of genome organization fully support this classification.
