This Wikibase instance is developed during the Virtual Biohackathon on COVID-19. The goal of this Wikibase is to serve as a staging server to improve the taxonomy of viruses on Wikidata. Often the concept of a 'taxon' and the description of a species are mixed on Wikidata

Taxonomy of viruses

The taxonomy is built using the ICTV Master Species List 2018b.v2. The ICTV is the authoritative source with respect to the taxonomy of viruses. The whole Master Species List is imported in the Wikibase.
