‘Viral dark matter’ could help mitigate climate change – here’s how

Recently, scientists discovered a treasure trove of new data on RNA viruses in the ocean, including 5,500 new species of RNA viruses. Analysis suggests that a small portion of them had genes “stolen” from organisms they infected, which helps identify their functions in marine processes. Several can help drive absorbed carbon from the atmosphere to […]
