Virology division news: Revision of taxonomic criteria for species demarcation in the family Geminiviridae, and an updated list of begomovirus species
Members of the family Geminiviridae characteristically have circular single-stranded DNAgenomes packaged within twinned (so-called geminate) particles. Geminiviruses are currentlydivided into fourExpand

Replicational release of geminivirus genomes from tandemly repeated copies: evidence for rolling-circle replication of a plant viral DNA.
Agrobacterium-mediated inoculation of Nicotiana benthamiana plants with Ti plasmids containing tandem genome repeats derived from different strains of the gemini-virus beet curly top virus (BCTV)Expand

Phylogenetic relationships within the family potyviridae: wheat streak mosaic virus and brome streak mosaic virus are not members of the genus rymovirus.
ABSTRACT The complete nucleotide sequence of wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) has been determined based on complementary DNA clones derived from the 9,384-nucleotide (nt) RNA of the virus. The genomeExpand

Identification of loci in Arabidopsis that confer resistance to geminivirus infection.
The infection of susceptible plant hosts by single-stranded DNA viruses in the geminivirus group depends on the interaction of host and viral factors for the replication of viral DNA, the expressionExpand

Evaluation of Olive as a Host of Xylella fastidiosa and Associated Sharpshooter Vectors.
Olive (Olea europaea) trees exhibiting leaf scorch or branch dieback symptoms in California were surveyed for the xylem-limited, fastidious bacterium Xylella fastidiosa. Only approximately 17% ofExpand

Evolution of Wheat streak mosaic virus: dynamics of population growth within plants may explain limited variation.
Like many other plant RNA viruses, Wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) sequence diversity within and among infected plants is low given the large number of virions produced. This may be explained byExpand

ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profile: Potyviridae
The Potyviridae is the largest family of RNA plant viruses, members of which have single-stranded, positive-sense RNA genomes and flexuous filamentous particles 680–900 nm long and 11–20 nm wide.Expand

Phylogenetic relationships, strain diversity and biogeography of tritimoviruses.
North American and Eurasian isolates of Wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV; genus Tritimovirus) and Oat necrotic mottle virus (ONMV; genus Rymovirus) were examined. Nine WSMV isolates differentiallyExpand
