Glacier viruses in the Alps and Arctic are remarkably similar

(sda) An international team of scientists led by Christopher Bellas from the University of Innsbruck has analyzed the genomes of viruses that live on the surface of glaciers in the Alps, Greenland and Svalbard in small melt pools, so-called cryoconite holes. Their findings call into question previous assumptions about the evolution of viruses. The researchers … Read more
