Abstract

Screening for viruses in samples taken from acidic hot springs of Kamchatka (Russia) revealed a collection of morphotypes, including linear, spherical and complex fusiform shapes, which show partial similarity to those found in acidic geothermal environments in other geographical locations. One of the viruses, Acidianus filamentous virus 9, AFV9, was isolated and its structure and genome were studied in detail.
