    Article about analyzing research databases of viral genomic sequences to find viruses that produce peptides similar to human hormones and regulatory proteins.

    They conclude some of these viruses could be a factor not only in diabetes, but metabolic disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer. Analyzing these viral peptides could lead to new treatments.
