SCOPE Spotlight

A recent SCOPE publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) discovered that the assemblage of viruses at Station ALOHA is relatively persistent, even over >1 year! The article titled, "Diel cycling and long-term persistence of viruses in the ocean's euphotic zone" (Aylward et al. 2017) also demonstrates that viral replication is linked to the diel cycles of their microbial hosts.
