Parvoviridae

(Science: virology) class II viruses. The genome of these simple viruses is single stranded DNA and they have an icosahedral nucleocapsid. The autonomous parvoviruses have a negative strand dNA and include viruses of vertebrates and arthropods. The defective Adeno associated viruses cannot replicate in the absence of helper adenoviruses and have both positive and negative stranded genomes, but packaged in separate virions.
