A06 - Viral Diversity, Viral de novo Assembly, and Viral Half-Life in Groundwater

Groundwater serves as drinking water. Drinking water should be nonpathogenic, but each year we are faced with outbreaks originating from viruses in groundwater or surface water. We aim to show (i) groundwater harbors one or two orders of magnitude more viruses than currently detected; (ii) a correlation between the bacterial and viral community and their nucleic adid modification signature; (iii) that viruses are infective without the host for more than two months; (iv) direct virus-host interaction; and to (v) develop a high-throughput pipeline for multiple bacteria simultaneously.
