Human Papillomaviruses

Human Papillomaviruses (HPVs) are the small circular double-stranded DNA viruses.

It belongs to the papillomaviridae family, taxonomically classified into distinct genera: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Mupa and Nupa.

These are further classified into distinct subgroups: high-risk and low risk HPVs.
