The Reanimated Virus
  • In 2014, researchers from the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique at Aix–Marseille Université in France dug a fascinating organism out of the Siberian permafrost: a so-called giant virus, about 30,000 years old, which they named Pithovirus sibericum.
  • P. sibericum is a DNA virus that contains a large number of genes — as many as 500. The size of giant viruses, as well as the fact that they contain such a large amount of DNA, can make them particularly dangerous. Scientists warn that there may be similar giant viruses buried inside the permafrost that could prove dangerous to humans.
