    Title : "Constrictor snakes as hosts for highly divergent viruses"
    Contact :
    The talk :
    Descriptions of boid inclusion body disease (BIBD) in captive collections of constrictor snakes date back to 1970s, however, it was only in 2010s when others and we discovered Arenaviruses as the causative agent of the disease, leading to expansion of the family Arenaviridae.

    Our subsequent studies on BIBD led to the discovery of additional arenaviruses and a hepatitis D virus (HDV)-like agent. The talk will delivers the story behind the discovery of Reptarenaviruses, Hartmaniviruses, and an HDV-like agent.
