DescriptionThe International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS) has charged the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) with the task of developing, refining, and maintaining a universal virus taxonomy. The goal of this undertaking is to categorize the multitude of known virus into a single classification scheme that reflects their evolutionary relationships, i.e. their individual phylogenies.
