Hibiscus spp. are popular ornamental plants in New Zealand. The genus is susceptible to Hibiscus chlorotic ringspot virus (HCRSV), a member of the genus Carmovirus, which has been reported in… Expand
The complete nucleotide sequence and genome organisation of a novel member of the family Betaflexiviridae from Actinidia chinensis
We report the complete genome sequence of a novel virus, tentatively named “actinidia seed-borne latent virus” (ASbLV), isolated from Actinidia chinensis in Auckland, New Zealand. The complete genome… Expand
First Report of Apium virus Y in Celery in New Zealand.
Apium virus Y (ApVY) has been detected for the first time in New Zealand. In January 2006, leaf mosaic and vein-banding symptoms were observed on cultivated celery (Apium graveolens cv. Tongo) in… Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of New Zealand tomato spotted wilt virus isolates suggests likely incursion history scenarios and mechanisms for population evolution
Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) is an internationally significant pathogen with a wide host range, vectored by thrips. We have studied the sequence variation and evolutionary mechanisms at play in… Expand
Characterization of hydrangea chlorotic mottle virus, a new member of the genus Carlavirus
An isolate of the tentative carlavirus species Hydrangea chlorotic mottle virus (HdCMV) was found in New Zealand (NZ) in 2007. The host range, serological properties and complete genome sequence of… Expand
First Report of Passiflora latent virus in Banana Passionfruit (Passiflora tarminiana) in New Zealand.
Passiflora latent virus (PLV) naturally infects cultivated and wild Passiflora species in Australia, Germany, Israel and the United States (1-3). In March 2004, chlorotic lesions were observed on… Expand
Two generic PCR primer sets for the detection of members of the genus Torradovirus.
Two degenerate primer pairs were designed for the universal detection of members of the genus Torradovirus. Primer pair Torrado-1F/Torrado-1R was designed based on the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase… Expand
