There is more attention to the virus (Virus) since the Kovid-19 epidemic spread in the world. This epidemic has been told how much viruses can be dangerous. Our scientists have not yet got complete information about the virus. Recently a search has also proved this. In this discovery, Virus has received a virus in 15,000-year-old ice samples (Ice Samples) in Tibetan Plateau of China (China).

Most of these viruses can be alive because they are different from all the viruses that are frozen in the snow for thousands of years, i.e. our scientists of such viruses did not have any information. The results of this study have been published in the Microbiom Journal. This research can help scientists understand the development of the virus.

For this research, scientists adopted a new method of study of microorganisms and viruses in the snow. It is a very clean method of analyzing microorganisms, which does not infection in the snow. Researchers say that these ice met them from glacier which were slowly and with them a lot of viruses with dust and gas.

Researcher of this study and researcher of Ohio State University, Researcher of the Polar and Climate Research Setter Viruses were part. The team analyzed the snow extracted from the Gulia Ice Cap from Western China in 2015.

These samples were taken from a lot of height, which were at the top of Gulia where the glacier turns out. This location is at a height of 22 thousand feet from sea level. When the snow analyzed, the researchers found genetic code of 33 viruses were four of these viruses that were already recognized by the scientific community. At the same time 28 viruses were completely new.

In this analysis, the researchers found that half the virus survived at that time when they were frozen. In this way they were survived due to ice not to snow. Professor Mattivu Sulwan of Microbiology in Ohio State says that these were viruses that can be alive in the extreme variety.

Sulwan said that there are such genes signature in these viruses that can infect cells in the cold environment. Such signs show how this virus save itself in extreme circumstances. Four viruses met on Gulia Ice Cap were first identified. They are from a virus family who infect bacteria. These viruses found in oceans and soil are very small.

Analysis indicates that the virus will throw with soil or plants, but not with animals and humans. This conclusion of researchers has extracted on the basis of the environment and the database of known viruses. There is no universal identical gene of Chinkivirus, so these new viruses have not been named.
