There's a new virus in Brazil that scientists can't even recognize

Now called as the Yaravirus, this recently discovered viral organism has a genome that is different from everything scientists recorded before and is reportedly recovering from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, which is an artificial lake.be composed of particles that are as small as 80 nm along with a significant number of genes that remain undescribed to date, which makes it very remarkable and unlike any virus that has been discovered.

The other 68 have never been seen before, known as orphan genes.

Two of the senior members of that team virologists Bernard La Scola from Aix-Marseille University in France, and Jônatas S. Abrahão from Brazil's Federal University of Minas Gerais ought to know what they're talking about. These microbes-some of which are of size of bacteria-were discovered in 2003.

"Here we report the discovery of Yaravirus, a new lineage of amoebal virus with a puzzling origin and phylogeny", the authors wrote.

Now, when they have sequenced the genome of the Yaravirus, it has surprised the researchers.

Scientists are saying that this virus is mysterious because it has genes that no one has seen before. According to her, "More than 95% of the viruses in sewage data have no matches to reference genomes [in databases]". Its genetic material is a mystery to scientists.

"Yaravirus is beyond our knowledge of the variety of DNA viruses", the expert said. Buck has evidence that says that papillomavirus also causes bladder cancer in patients with kidney transfer.

For finding circular viruses, the team isolated virus from numerous human tissues and from other animals and then screened them. However, the gene sequences are unrecognizable, making the virus unique and freaky.

However, there's not the only coronavirus from which you all should be careful; here's a new virus that has been found by the scientist and its nearly sending shockwaves through the scientific association.

Recent research has found viruses as much more complex than was once believed, and in recent years, scientists have uncovered other kinds of viral forms that find new and unusual ways of spreading and infecting. The studies have not yet deliberated on the characterisation of the viruses that have been found novel. Where in the history of life these viruses arose, including whether giant viruses could represent close relatives to the ancestor that gave rise to all viruses, is still unknown. This has led some scientists to question whether viruses should be considered living entities at all.
