Joint Genome Institute Study Reveals Diversity of Giant Viruses Worldwide

7 days ago   |   By News Center

A team led by the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute at Berkeley Lab has reconstructed the genomes of 2,074 large and giant viruses found across the globe, drastically increasing the number of known viruses and providing a resource for future studies on this poorly understood group of viruses, called nucleocytoplasmic large DNA viruses .
The work, recently published in Nature , drew from more than 8,500 publicly available metagenome datasets generated from samples of microbial communities, many of which were from freshwater ecosystems. (A metagenome is the entire collection...
