The Rapidly Expanding Family of Human Polyomaviruses | Virology News | Scoop.it
New human polyomviruses keep being discovered - what are the consequences of infection?
Ed Rybicki's insight:

It is fascinating to see the rate at which new viruses are being described - and even from humans, when might have safely assumed a little while ago that nearly everything that did anything had long been characterised.  But not so - as this, and doubtless other papers going through the mill, will tell us.  Maybe even one from here in Cape Town...B-)

Just what I like: someone not scared of beating irrational skeptics with a big stick.  Several times.
