Abstract

"Medusaviridae" is a proposed family of large DNA viruses so far represented by a sole virus isolated from a hot spring. In the present study, we report the isolation and genome sequencing of a new member of this family, medusavirus stheno, discovered from a freshwater sample with Acanthamoeba castellanii coculture.
