About Virus-X

The project “Viral Metagenomics for Innovation Value” (Virus-X), was a large collaboration project between a total of 15 partners from European research institutes, universities and industry with a total budget of nearly 8 M€, funded under Horizon2020 – Research and Innovation Action (RIA). Viruses represent the largest reservoir of unknown genetic diversity on earth and the project aim to advance the understanding of viral ecosystems, diversity and virus-host interplay by DNA sequencing environmental libraries (metagenomes) from a number of different biotopes. The project is driven by the expected large innovation value and unique properties of viral gene products. Through an analysis and discovery pipeline, new enzymes for molecular biotechnology will be developed, and ArcticZymes is one of the industrial partners that will participate developing and bringing new viral enzymes to the market.
