    About This Project

    Viruses do more than just make us sick. Viruses are the most numerous organisms on the planet and they are everywhere, including soil. In the soil they can infect bacteria and other organisms that carry out important ecosystem functions, like nutrient cycling. It is likely that viruses have important effects on ecosystems, but we don't know exactly what that is! We hope to discover the role of viruses in the soil by identifying the viruses in a soil ecosystem.
