We show here for the first time the crucial role of viruses in controlling archaeal dynamics and therefore the functioning of deep-sea ecosystems, and suggest that virus-archaea interactions play a central role in global biogeochemical cycles.
Bacteria that cannot find enough food become archaea due to virus-driven energy theft. That fact was placed into the context of “..a possible link between viral infections and chemoautotrophic production in the microbial food web.”
I do not know how anything is produced by chemoautotrophic processes. It sounds like magic or the theories of neo-Darwinists.
See for comparison: Cellular versus viral microRNAs in host–virus interaction
I seems likely that viral microRNAs are produced in the context of the degradation of messenger RNA in all cell types.

…some, if not all-epigenetic writer enzymes may be regulated by RNA. Thus, RNA may be a major gatekeeper for epigenetic inheritance in vertebrates.
RNA biosynthesis is energy-dependent. MicroRNA flanking sequences have been linked to all morphological and behavioral phenotypes in all living genera via the physiology of reproduction and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA.

The phylogenetic utility and functional constraint of microRNA flanking sequences
The majority of flanking sequences used in our analyses are composed of non-coding intergenic DNA, suggesting that conservation of these hairpin-loop flanking sequences is independent of either the presence of exonic sequence or protein-coding gene regions.
Since the energy-dependent creation of the hairpin-loop flanking sequences is the obvious link from the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to all biophysically constrained biodiversity in all living genera, why did Georg Urtel make this claim?
Is there something that he and others like him would rather you did not learn about energy-dependent biophysically constrained RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction?
