Image of the Week: Pandoravirus!

This week’s image could obviously only be of the two newly discovered, absolutely massive, Pandoravirus. This gorgeous image comes to us via The Scientist magazine. The new viruses are so large, and their DNA so distinct from anything we have seen before, some argue they should be classified as a distinct kingdom.
