The putative causal agent of the disease, a negative-sense RNA virus and new member of the genus Emaravirus, is identified and characterized and diversity studies demonstrated that the virus has low diversity between isolates as they share nucleotide identities ranging from 97 to 99%.

Phylogenetic analyses revealed that this virus, for which the name Southern tomato virus (STV) is proposed, belongs to a partitivirus-like lineage and represents a species of a new taxon of plant viruses.
Molecular characterization of a new tospovirus infecting soybean
Protein pairwise comparisons coupled with phylogenetic analyses indicate that the virus detected in soybean vein necrosis is a new member of the genus Tospovirus.
Epidemiology of soybean vein necrosis-associated virus.
Significant insight is provided into the biology of the most widespread soybean virus in the United States and Koch's postulates were fulfilled using soybean thrips and transmission efficiency was determined.

The goals of this article are to update the knowledge on previously characterized viruses of Rubus, highlight recently described viruses, review the virus-induced symptoms, describe the advances made in their detection, and discuss the knowledge about several virus complexes that cause serious diseases in Rubus.
An integrated badnavirus is prevalent in fig germplasm.
Evidence that FBV-1 is integrated in the fig genome is presented and discussed and its wide distribution in the United States is suggested.
Survey for Viruses of Grapevine in Oregon and Washington.

Transmission of field isolates of GLRaV-3 from Washington by the grape mealybug also was demonstrated, and no ToRSV, ArMV, or GFLV was detected in any of the samples from Oregon or Washington.
A member of a new genus in the Potyviridae infects Rubus.

A potyvirus, designated as Blackberry virus Y (BVY), has been identified in plants with blackberry yellow vein disease symptoms also infected with BYVaV, the largest potyVirus sequenced to date and the first to encode an AlkB domain.
Identification, Characterization, and Detection of Black raspberry necrosis virus.
It is concluded that Black raspberry decline-associated virus (BRDaV) is a strain of BRNV, a previously described yet unsequenced virus that belongs to the genus Sadwavirus.
Identification, detection and transmission of a new vitivirus from Mentha
Sequence and phylogenetic analysis indicate that the virus identified in the atypical ‘Variegata’ clone, designated as mint virus-2, is related to members of the species Grapevine virus A, grapevine virus B and Heracleum latent virus, placing it in the genus Vitivirus.
