In PLOS Genetics, a French team explores the transfer of host genetic material into viruses, focusing on baculoviruses infecting two moth species. Through deep sequencing experiments on 21 baculovirus populations, the researchers uncovered 86 DNA sequences suspected of making their way from the moth genome into the viruses during the infection process. The set included 69 transposable elements and 17 previously undescribed moth sequences, the authors note.
