    This article presents information on PARV4, a member of the Parvovirus family first reported in 2005. It is characterised by small, non-enveloped, single-stranded DNA viruses, with an icosahedral capsid. It is one of the only four groups of parvovirus known to infect humans. The origin of PARV4...
