Brazilian Begomovirus Populations Are Highly Recombinant, Rapidly Evolving, and Segregated Based on Geographical Location
ABSTRACT The incidence of begomovirus infections in crop plants sharply increased in Brazil during the 1990s following the introduction of the invasive B biotype of the whitefly vector, BemisiaExpand

Molecular and biological characterization of Cowpea mild mottle virus isolates infecting soybean in Brazil and evidence of recombination
The biological and molecular characterization of six isolates of a new Cowpea mild mottle virus strain (CPMMV;Carlavirus, Betaflexiviridae) are reported. Soybean plants with mosaic and stem necrosisExpand

The ever increasing diversity of begomoviruses infecting non‐cultivated hosts: new species from Sida spp. and Leonurus sibiricus, plus two New World alphasatellites
Begomoviruses (whitefly-transmitted, single-stranded DNA plant viruses) are among the most damaging pathogens causing epidemics in economically important crops worldwide. Besides cultivated plants,Expand

Occurrence of a new recombinant begomovirus species infecting tomato in the Al‐Batinah region of Oman
Whitefly-transmitted begomoviruses are the most important limiting factor for tomato cultivation in Oman, particularly in the Al-Batinah region, the major agricultural area of the country. CommercialExpand

Genetic variability and population structure of the New World begomovirus Euphorbia yellow mosaic virus.
The emergence of begomoviruses (whitefly-transmitted viruses classified in the genus Begomovirus, family Geminiviridae) in Brazil probably occurred by horizontal transfer from non-cultivated plantsExpand

MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE DNA-A OF THE BEGOMOVIRUS TOMATO MOTTLE LEAF CURL VIRUS (ToMoLCV)
Begomoviruses cause economic losses in many crops, mainly in tropical and subtropical regions. Their genome is formed by one or two components and are transmitted by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci toExpand
Genetic structure analyses of the tomato-infecting crinivirus Tomato chlorosis virus indicates low genetic variability in the p22 gene and evidence of segregation based on sampling location in Brazil
One of the most important virus diseases in tomatoes in Brazil is caused by isolates of tomato chlorosis virus (ToCV, Tomato chlorosis virus, genus Crinivirus, family Closteroviridae). ToCV has aExpand
