We ground up soybean aphids from the Midwest and China, Illumina sequenced the RNA, and discovered that aphid viruses are ubiquitous.  Ranging from viruses found in other aphids and in honey bees, to plant viruses vectored by the aphid, to viruses representing whole new families, so novel we're not sure if they infect insects or plants!  Published in the brand new APS journal: Phytobiomes
