A06 - Viral Diversity, Viral de novo Assembly, and Viral Decay in Groundwater

Project A06 will determine the diversity of previously known viruses in groundwater by high-throughput sequencing of viral genomes. A challenge in virology is the identification of previously undetected viruses, which we will tackle with our new approach of virus assembly. We complement the approach by investigating the differences of metatranscriptomes of the different sampling sites. Finally, we will determine the broadly unknown virus decay in groundwater to gain insights in communication pauses with other organisms.
