The HF2 genome is a mosaic of components from widely different sources, demonstrating clearly that viruses of haloarchaea, like their bacteriophage counterparts, are vectors for the exchange and transmission of genetic material between wide taxonomic distances, even across domains.
Haloarchaeal viruses: how diverse are they?
Haloviruses HF1 and HF2: Evidence for a Recent and Large Recombination Event
The complete sequence of the HF1 genome has now been determined, mainly by PCR and primer walking, and it is indicated there is a high level of recombination among viruses that live in this extreme environment.
Analysis of SD sequences in completed microbial genomes: non-SD-led genes are as common as SD-led genes.
Microbial and viral metagenomes of a subtropical freshwater reservoir subject to climatic disturbances
It is found that the microbial community structure and the associated metagenomes continuously changed, where microbial richness increased after typhoon events and decreased during winter, and the precipitation level was associated with the terrestrial viral abundance in the reservoir.

PH1 is a member of the same virus group as SH1 and HHIV-2, and the name halosphaerovirus is proposed to accommodate these viruses.

A new analysis pipeline called ViQuaS for viral quasispecies spectrum reconstruction using short next-generation sequencing reads based on a novel reference-assisted de novo assembly algorithm for constructing local haplotypes and a significantly extended version of an existing global strain reconstruction algorithm.

The clustering analysis suggests that the influence of spatial and temporal factors on the coral-associated bacteria population structure is considerable; nonetheless, the effect of species specificity is still detectable in some coral species, especially those from the Caribbean Sea.
An unsupervised hierarchical dynamic self-organizing approach to cancer class discovery and marker gene identification in microarray data
An unsupervised dynamic hierarchical self-organizing approach, which suggests an appropriate number of clusters, to perform class discovery and marker gene identification in microarray data, and integrates merits of hierarchical clustering with robustness against noise known from self- Organizing approaches.
