I know I've asked this before but since I wasn't getting answers in the other section, I decided to put his in a different area. Anyway, kindly bear with me.
In addition to my previous post, I happen to come across an article that further piqued my curiosity.
Since I read that article in Discover magazine (April 2010, page 80) - where an amoeba was discovered to have a virus inside, and the article further stating that "viruses and bacteria can swap genes" (quoting from that article) - it made me wonder: can viruses really also get genes from a protozoa, as well as from bacteria and vice-versa?
Is that scenario possible?
