The genome organization of banana bunchy top virus: analysis of six ssDNA components.
We have cloned, sequenced and analysed an additional five circular ssDNA components of banana bunchy top virus (BBTV) which we have called components 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. These components were presentExpand

Design and application of two novel degenerate primer pairs for the detection and complete genomic characterization of potyviruses
SummaryTwo pairs of degenerate primers were designed from sequences within the potyviral CI (CIFor/CIRev) and HC-Pro-coding regions (HPFo/HPRev), and these were shown to be highly specific to membersExpand

Sequence diversity of South Pacific isolates of Taro bacilliform virus and the development of a PCR-based diagnostic test
Summary. We have analysed the sequence variability in the putative reverse transcriptase (RT)/ribonuclease H (RNaseH) and the C-terminal coat protein (CP)-coding regions from Taro bacilliform virusExpand

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.
Sixteen viruses, belonging to 16 species of begomovirus, that infect crops and weeds in Vietnam were identified. Sequence analysis of the complete genomes showed that nine of the viruses (sixExpand

Nucleotide sequence of one component of the banana bunchy top virus genome contains a putative replicase gene.
One DNA component of the banana bunchy top virus (BBTV) genome was cloned and sequenced. This component is present as a circular, ssDNA in the virions and consists of 1111 nucleotides. It containsExpand

On the evolution and molecular epidemiology of the potyvirus Papaya ringspot virus.
The potyvirus Papaya ringspot virus (PRSV) is found throughout the tropics and subtropics. Its P biotype is a devastating pathogen of papaya crops and its W biotype of cucurbits. PRSV-P is thought toExpand

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 sequencesExpand
