Bacteriophage observations and evolution part of SERC Print Resource Collection
Bacteriophages are classified into one order and 13 families. Over 5100 phages have been examined in the electron microscope since 1959. At least 4950 phages (96%) are tailed. They constitute the ...
The 1.2-Megabase Genome Sequence of Mimivirus part of SERC Print Resource Collection
We recently reported the discovery and preliminary characterization of Mimivirus, the largest known virus, with a 400-nanometer particle size comparable to mycoplasma. Mimivirus is a double-stranded ...
Are Viruses Alive? part of SERC Print Resource Collection
This article discusses how viruses, somewhere between living and nonliving, are categorized in biology, and their role in evolution. For about 100 years, the scientific community has repeatedly ...
Do viruses form lineages across different domains of life? part of SERC Print Resource Collection
The scarce characterization of the viral world has hampered our efforts to appreciate the magnitude and diversity of the viral domain. It appears that almost every species can be infected by a number ...
