A study on novel data collected largely by the Tara Oceans expedition1 has provided the most complete catalog to date of the viruses present in the world's oceans, increasing the number of known marine virus populations from 16,000 to nearly 200,000. Published as the cover article in the 16 May 2019 edition of Cell, the work revealed the key role of the Arctic Ocean as a reservoir for marine viruses. The study's results will become a cornerstone for understanding the role of viruses in oceanic responses to climate change.
