Human Adenovirus Working Group

As a service to the adenovirus research community, with the goals of coordinating and standardizing the process of assigning names to candidate novel human adenoviruses and reducing conflicts with names, the Human Adenovirus Working Group is a collaboration between adenoviral researchers and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NIH)/GenBank.

This serves the purpose of avoiding duplicate genotype numbers (and retractions) in the literature and screening inappropriate candidates, such as laboratory constructs.

This is an on-going discussion in developing and refining typing criteria that is open to the adenovirus research community for input.

If you want your novel genotype to be vetted, please send an email to the address noted under the section “Submit “candidate” HAdV“. This is recommended by GenBank to avoid multiple groups submitting the same name/type number for different genotypes.
