Deep sequencing analysis of RNAs from a grapevine showing Syrah decline symptoms reveals a multiple virus infection that includes a novel virus.
In a search for viruses associated with decline symptoms of Syrah grapevines, we have undertaken an analysis of total plant RNA sequences using Life Sciences 454 high-throughput sequencing. 67.5Expand

Real-time RT-PCR (TaqMan) assays for the detection of Grapevine Leafroll associated viruses 1-5 and 9.
Real-time RT-PCR (TaqMan) assays were developed for the specific detection of Grapevine Leafroll associated viruses 1-5 and 9 (GLRaV-1-5 and -9). The assays were evaluated against a wide range ofExpand

Application of a spotting sample preparation technique for the detection of pathogens in woody plants by RT-PCR and real-time PCR (TaqMan).
An extraction technique for reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) detection of plant pathogens including viruses, bacteria and phytoplasma is described. The total nucleic acid of these plant pathogensExpand
