Preliminary research into viruses infecting bryophytes and their microbial communities: a metagenomic hunt

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This research aims to make preliminary screening in bryophytes and their microbiomes for the presence of DNA viruses as well as endogenous viral insertions, reflecting their evolutionary history with viruses. This pioneering work will open new horizons to comprehend to what extent bryophyte-virus relationships underpin the ecosystem services provided by bryophytes.
