Identification and characterization of a new member of the genus Luteovirus from cherry
A new virus from cherry trees represents a new luteovirus species and is the fourth member of the family Luteoviridae reported to naturally infect woody plants. Expand
Molecular characterization of a new monopartite dsRNA mycovirus from mycorrhizal Thelephora terrestris (Ehrh.) and its detection in soil oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida).
A novel dsRNA virus was identified in the mycorrhizal fungus Thelephora terrestris (Ehrh.) and sequenced and the first description of mycovirus presence in oribatid mites is described. Expand
Virus Detection by High-Throughput Sequencing of Small RNAs: Large-Scale Performance Testing of Sequence Analysis Strategies.
This work revealed the key influence of bioinformatics strategies for the sensitive detection of viruses in HTS sRNA datasets and proposed recommendations for reliable sRNA-based detection of known and unknown viruses. Expand
Complete genome sequences of two divergent isolates of strawberry crinkle virus coinfecting a single strawberry plant
Complete sequences of two divergent SCV isolates co-infecting a single plant, Fragaria x ananassa cv, are presented and existing RT-PCR-based detection relies on a partial sequence of the L protein gene. Expand
Molecular characterization of a novel amalgavirus from the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana
The genomic organization and the complete nucleotide sequence of a novel virus isolated from the isolate A24 of B. bassiana are determined and it is revealed that it belongs to the family Amalgaviridae and represents a distinct lineage of amalgaviruses infecting fungi. Expand
Complete genome sequence of a novel hypovirus infecting Phomopsis longicolla
The complete nucleotide sequence and genome organization of a hypovirus from the isolate ME711 of Phomopsis longicolla was determined and compared to sequences of members of the family Hypoviridae.Expand
Variability Studies of Two Prunus-Infecting Fabaviruses with the Aid of High-Throughput Sequencing
High-throughput sequencing of co-infection of sweet and sour cherry trees with diverse genomic variants of two closely related viruses supports the idea that CVF and PrVF represent two separate Fabavirus species. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Divergent Closterovirus Isolates Infecting Ribes Species
Five isolates of a new member of the family Closteroviridae, tentatively named blackcurrant leafroll-associated virus 1 (BcLRaV-1), were identified in the currant, andylogenetic and recombination analysis provided evidence of intraspecies recombination. Expand
Multigene characterization of a new 'Candidatus Phytoplasma rubi'-related strain associated with blackberry witches' broom.
A new phytoplasma was identified in naturally infected blackberry plants exhibiting witches' broom symptoms in Portugal and revealed a unique profile following MseI endonuclease digestion of R16F2n/R2 amplicons that distinguished it from the strains belonging to previously established 16SrV phy toplasma subgroups. Expand
Red clover-associated luteovirus – a newly classifiable member of the genus Luteovirus with an enamo-like P5 protein
The complete genomic sequence of a novel virus isolated from red clover likely represents a new luteovirus species because its P5 protein is more similar to the P5 of enamoviruses than that of luteviruses. Expand
