Monkeypox virus (MPXV) is an enveloped double‐stranded DNA virus. It belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus of the Poxviridae family.

The Orthopoxvirus genus also includes Vaccinia virus, Cowpox virus, Variola virus and several other, animal-related, poxviruses.

Two phylogenetically distinct clades of MPXV have been identified through genomic sequencing: the Central African (Congo Basin) clade and the West African clade.
