Filoviruses are ancient and integrated into mammalian genomes


Unexpected Inheritance: Multiple Integrations of Ancient Bornavirus and Ebolavirus/Marburgvirus Sequences in Vertebrate Genomes
This first comprehensive study of its kind demonstrates that the sources of genetic inheritance in vertebrate genomes are considerably more diverse than previously appreciated.

No… no… PLOS received this paper first, but BMC Evolutionary Biology published their paper first… so… no…

Its still neat, but… :-/
