    EXCERPT

    Its genetic code is roughly twice the size of the record-holding Megavirus. And it seems almost completely unlike anything else on the planet. Only 6 percent of its genes resembled the genes other organisms. [Jean-Michel Claverie of Aix-Marseille University in France] says he thinks the Pandoraviruses may come from a different origin – perhaps radically different.
