The genome organization of banana bunchy top virus: analysis of six ssDNA components.
BBTV appears to belong to an undescribed plant virus group which could also include subterranean clover stunt virus, coconut foliar decay virus, faba bean necrotic yellows virus and milk vetch dwarf virus.
Design and application of two novel degenerate primer pairs for the detection and complete genomic characterization of potyviruses
Using the CIFor and CIRev primers, three novel potyviruses infecting crop and weed species from Vietnam were detected and sequence comparisons and phylogenetic analyses indicated that WTMV was most closely related to chilli veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV), while PeLMV, TelMV and BBrMV were related to different extents to members of the bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) subgroup.
Sequence diversity of South Pacific isolates of Taro bacilliform virus and the development of a PCR-based diagnostic test
Based on the sequences of the TaBV RT/RNaseH-coding region, a PCR-based diagnostic test that specifically detects all knownTaBV isolates is developed and preliminary indexing has revealed that TaBv is widespread throughout Pacific Island countries.

Molecular characterization of begomoviruses and DNA satellites from Vietnam: additional evidence that the New World geminiviruses were present in the Old World prior to continental separation.
A second bipartite begomovirus, Corchorus golden mosaic virus, shared several features with the previously characterized virus Corch chorus yellow vein virus and with other bipartites from the New World, supporting the hypothesis that New World-like viruses were present in the Old World.
Genetic transformation of Cavendish banana (Musa spp. AAA group) cv 'Grand Nain' via microprojectile bombardment
Plants were regenerated, under selection with kanamycin, that were co-transformed with nptII and either the uidA or BBTV genes.
Evidence for two groups of banana bunchy top virus isolates.
The results, together with other evidence, suggest that BBTV has spread to bananas after the initial movement of bananas from the Asian Pacific regions to Africa and the Americas.
Centrifugation Assisted Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated Transformation (CAAT) of embryogenic cell suspensions of banana (Musa spp. Cavendish AAA and Lady finger AAB)
Development of a highly efficient Agrobacterium-mediated transformation protocol for a recalcitrant species like banana, especially the Cavendish group (AAA) cultivars, required the identification and optimisation of the factors affecting T-DNA delivery and subsequent plant regeneration.
Nucleotide sequence of one component of the banana bunchy top virus genome contains a putative replicase gene.

There is strong evidence that the genome of BBTV consists of more than one component because no ORF was found that would encode a protein the size of the BBTV coat protein, and BBTV probably belongs to an undescribed plant virus group which could also include subterranean clover stunt virus and coconut foliar decay virus.
Papaya ringspot potyvirus: isolate variability and the origin of PRSV type P (Australia).

We have sequenced the coat protein gene of nine isolates of papaya ringspot virus (PRSV) including six Australian and three Asian isolates and compared these with four previously reported sequences…
