Multiple occurrences of giant virus core genes acquired by eukaryotic genomes: the visible part of the iceberg?

Giant Viruses are a widespread group of viruses, characterized by huge genomes composed of a small subset of ancestral, vertically inherited core genes along with a large body of highly variable genes. In this study, I report the acquisition of 23 core ancestral Giant Virus genes by diverse eukaryotic species including various protists, a moss and a… CONTINUE READING
