Hypersaline environments harbour the highest number of virus-like particles reported for planktonic systems. However, very little is known about the genomic diversity of these virus assemblages since most of the knowledge on halophages is based on the analysis of a few isolates infecting strains of hyperhalophilic Archaea that may not be representatives of the natural microbiota. Here, we report the characterization, through a metagenomic approach, of the viral assemblage inhabiting a… CONTINUE READING
