    Congratulations! It is interesting to note that the marine virus research has been more exposed, especially by new technology- metagenomic.

    Perhaps a new paradigm of virus will be emerging by the discoveries in marine viruses; evolving from lethal pathogens to ecosystem regulators.

    Sometimes, I wonder that the axis of biological world is in the domain of virus, not in the protista. It is my primary speculation.

    As a shrimp virus technician for the last 20 years, I have seen the light from the other tunnel to compliment our human-centered view of the universe. It may change our health management and clinic protocol.

    Let us explore this frontier with cautious speculation. And wish the research team with high motivations.
