    About This Project

    It has been estimated that <1% of viral species have been identified. Part of the difficulty with identifying and characterizing viruses is our lack of ability to culture most of them in a lab. Advances in sequencing technologies have made it possible for us to examine viruses without culturing them. This study seeks to determine the population composition and stability of single-stranded DNA viruses in the environment.
