Taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae and other recent progress in partitivirus research.
The focus of this review is the taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae (encapsidated, bisegmented dsRNA viruses that infect plants, fungi, or protozoa), as well as redistribution of species among these new genera. Expand
50-plus years of fungal viruses.
Although many mycoviruses do not have marked effects on their hosts, those that reduce the virulence of their phytopathogenic fungal hosts are of considerable interest for development of novel biocontrol strategies. Expand

The discovery of an ssDNA mycovirus from the plant pathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum enhances the potential of exploring fungal viruses as valuable tools for molecular manipulation of fungi and for plant disease control and expands the knowledge of global virus ecology and evolution.

Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2016
The updated taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV). Expand

  • 4 August 2014
In this review, the advantages of using hypovirulence-associated mycoviruses to control crop diseases are discussed, and, as an example, the potential for Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirus-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1) to control the stem rot of rapeseed is introduced. Expand
Molecular characterization of Penicillium chrysogenum virus: reconsideration of the taxonomy of the genus Chrysovirus.
The results suggest the creation of a new family of mycoviruses with multipartite dsRNA genomes to accommodate PcV and related viruses. Expand
Effect of volatile substances of Streptomyces platensis F-1 on control of plant fungal diseases
Headspace volatile substances (VS) produced by Streptomyces platensis F-1 were preliminarily identified using GC–MS and two antifungal compounds, phenylethyl alcohol and (+)-epi-bicyclesesquiphellandrene, were detected in the volatile profile of S. platensisF-1. Expand
Diversity and biocontrol potential of endophytic fungi in Brassica napus
Results suggest that B. napus harbors diversified endophytic fungi, from which potential biocontrol agents against S. sclerotiorum and B. cinerea can be screened. Expand
Widespread Horizontal Gene Transfer from Circular Single-stranded DNA Viruses to Eukaryotic Genomes
It is concluded that the replication initiation protein (Rep)-related sequences of geminiviruses, nanoviruses and circovirus have been frequently transferred to a broad range of eukaryotic species, including plants, fungi, animals and protists, and sheds light on the origin and evolution of these viruses. Expand
Evolutionary genomics of mycovirus-related dsRNA viruses reveals cross-family horizontal gene transfer and evolution of diverse viral lineages
This study provides an insight into the phylogeny and evolution of mycovirus-related dsRNA viruses and reveals that the occurrence of HGT between different virus species and the development of multipartite genomes during evolution are important macroevolutionary mechanisms in ds RNA viruses. Expand
