With the initial discovery of a giant virus, mimivirus, the notion of viruses being small and simple was shattered. Since this discovery, there has been an increasing number of unique giant viruses isolated each year. Due to the sheer size, it is extremely challenging to obtain structural information on these giants. Here, we present a structural characterization of Samba Virus, a Mimivirus isolated from the Rio Negro in Brazil, combining data from cryo-EM, cryo-ET, SEM, and fluorescence microscopy. Also, we compare the morphology of Samba Virus and mimivirus virions. Read Full Article
