A global viral oceanography database (gVOD) from 1987 to 2018


Virioplankton is a key component of marine biosphere in maintaining diversity of microorganisms and stabilizing ecosystems. They also greatly contribute to nutrient recycles by releasing organic matter after lysis of hosts. We constructed the global viral oceanography database (gVOD) by collecting 10,931 viral abundance (VA) data and 727 viral production (VP) data, along with host and other oceanographic parameters when available. We expect that the gVOD will be a fundamental and very useful database for laboratory, field and modeling studies in marine ecology and biogeochemistry.
