Research Article: A DNA Virus of Drosophila

Date Published: October 28, 2011 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Robert L. Unckless, Robert DeSalle. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0026564 Abstract: Little is known about the viruses infecting most species. Even in groups as well-studied as Drosophila, only a handful of viruses have been well-characterized. A viral metagenomic approach was used to explore viral diversity in 83 wild-caught Drosophila … Continue reading Research Article: A DNA Virus of Drosophila
