Viruses that infect certain strains of the unicellular green alga, Chlorella, have a large, linear dsDNA genome that is 330-380 kb in size; this genomic size is the largest known among viruses and is equivalent to approximately 60% of the smallest prokaryotic genome of Mycoplasma genitalium (580 kb). Besides many putative protein-coding genes, a cluster of 10-15 tRNA genes is present in these viral genomes. Some of these tRNA genes contain peculiar insertions. In infected host cells, the viral… CONTINUE READING
