The last decade has seen resurgent interest in the study of viruses that lie outside traditional agricultural and medical interests. One reason is the growing appreciation of their enormous abundance within the environment. A second is the impact of these viruses on the greater biosphere. For example, the oceans are thought to contain more than 10 exp31 viruses. This is a truly astronomical number, if laid end to end they would stretch for more than 200 million light years.
