It was organized by Ann Palmenberg (University of Madison-Wisconsin) and Andrew Ball (President, ICTV; University of Alabama at Birmingham) and was supported by Academic Press/Elsevier, Bristol Myers Squibb, The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine, US National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center, Wyeth Lederle Vaccines, and the ASV. Andrew Ball introduced the symposium by pointing out extremes of the taxonomic tasks demanded by virology, ranging from the ability to distinguish viruses clearly into strains, species, genera, families and orders in some cases (the example of the recently achieved classiﬁcation of human papillomaviruses was given; de Villiers et al., ) to the enormous difﬁculties caused by extensive mosaicism as encountered in the genomes of dsDNA tailed bacteriophages (e.g. ).
