I need to have a complete taxonomy of the Hep A virus
. Does anyone know this? Even just the genus
and species would be a huge help. Thanks!
The hepatitis A virus has several characteristics that are typical of the enterovirus family (poliovirus is the prototype). Nevertheless, molecular and cellular analyses have led to the assignment of the hepatitis A virus to a separate genus in the Picornaviridae family called hepatovirus. It is an RNA, single stranded virus without an envelope.
