Molecular variability of geographically distinct isolates of Rice yellow mottle virus in Africa
Summary. The coat protein gene (ORF4) and the 3′ untranslated region of a sample of 40 isolates of Rice yellow mottle virus (RYMV), 32 from West Africa and 8 from East Africa, have been sequenced.Expand

Molecular ecology and emergence of tropical plant viruses.
An appreciation of the risks caused by emergent plant viruses is critical in tropical areas that rely heavily on agriculture for subsistence and rural livelihood. Molecular ecology, within 10 years,Expand

The Genetic Basis of High Resistance to Rice Yellow Mottle Virus (RYMV) in Cultivars of Two Cultivated Rice Species.
Three cultivars of Oryza sativa (IR64, Azucena, and Gigante) and four cultivars of O. glaberrima (Tog5681, Tog5673, CG14, and SG329) were evaluated for their resistance to two isolates of rice yellowExpand

Genetic basis and mapping of the resistance to rice yellow mottle virus. I. QTLs identification and relationship between resistance and plant morphology
Abstract Rice yellow mottle virus (RYMV) resistance QTLs were mapped in a doubled-haploid population of rice, ‘IR64/Azucena’. Disease impact on plant morphology and development, expression ofExpand

Yield losses induced by African cassava mosaic virus in relation to the mode and the date of infection
Abstract Yield reduction of cassava infected with African cassava mosaic virus (ACMV) was greater when plants were infected from the outset as cuttings than later by the whitefly vector BemisiaExpand
