New Virus Metadata Resource:
Version 21; November 22, 2022

A new version of the Virus Metadata Resource (VMR) spreadsheet has been released. This is version. 21, released on November 22, 2022. It can be downloaded from https://ictv.global/vmr/current. The ICTV chooses an exemplar virus for each species and the VMR provides a list of these exemplars. An exemplar virus serves as an example of a well-characterized virus isolate of that species and includes the GenBank accession number for the genomic sequence of the isolate as well as the virus name, isolate designation, suggested abbreviation, genome composition, and host source. For more information on the VMR, please see https://ictv.global/vmr.
