Anelloviruses are nonenveloped single-stranded DNA viruses infecting a wide range of mammals. We report three complete genomes of novel anelloviruses detected in laboratory rats. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrates that these viruses are related to but distinct from recently described rodent Torque teno viruses (RoTTVs) found in wild rodent species.
