This is a comprehensive guide to single-stranded RNA phages (family Leviviridae), first discovered in 1961. These phages played a unique role in early studies of molecular biology, the genetic code, translation, replication, suppression of mutations. Special attention will be devoted to modern applications of the RNA phages and their products in nanotechnology, vaccinology, gene discovery, evolutionary and environmental studies. This overview of the generation of novel vaccines, gene therapy vectors, drug delivery and diagnostic tools will also explore the role of RNA phage-derived products in the revolutionary progress of the protein tethering and bioimaging protocols will be outlined.
