Viral evolution is revealed by giant viruses encoding multiple components of the protein translation machinery. The evolution of giant virus genomes Some giant viruses encode a genome larger than that of some bacteria, but their evolutionary history is a mystery. Examining the genomes within a sample from a wastewater treatment plant in Austria, Schulz et al. assembled a previously undiscovered giant virus genome, which they used to mine genetic databases for related viruses. The authors thus… Expand
