Viral "ORFan Genome"?

This is a bioRxiv article, so a pre-print, but a fascinating look at a novel virus. I see your “ORFan gene” and raise you an “ORFan genome”! All kidding aside, this is a very good illustration of how much there is still left to discover in the viral world.


My neighbor used to have an orphan genome in his yard.

Until some kid stole it.
