This Week in PLOS

A genome sequencing study in PLOS Genetics suggests that an obligate mutualist bracoviruses have undergone dramatic genome reorganization during adaptation to life inside parasitoid wasps. Researchers from the University of Georgia and elsewhere sequenced a draft genome sequence for the parasitoid wasp species Microplitis demolitor, simultaneously characterizing sequences for the bracovirus living within it. The team's comparisons between the M.
