Fig mosaic virus (FMV) is a multipartite negative-sense RNA virus infecting fig trees worldwide. FMV is transmitted by vegetative propagation and grafting of plant materials, and by the eriophyid mite Aceria ficus. In this work, the genetic variation and evolutionary mechanisms shaping FMV populations were characterized. Nucleotide sequences from four(More)
‘Candidatus Phytoplasma mali’, the causal agent of apple proliferation (AP) disease, is a quarantine pathogen controlled by chemical treatments against insect vectors and eradication of diseased plants. In accordance with the European Community guidelines, novel strategies should be developed for sustainable management of plant diseases by using resistance(More)
Plum pox virus (PPV) is the most damaging viral pathogen of stone fruits. The detection and identification of its strains are therefore of critical importance to plant quarantine and certification programs. Existing methods to screen strains of PPV suffer from significant limitations such as the simultaneous detection and genotyping of several strains of(More)
Foliar virus-like symptoms consisting of yellowing, chlorotic spots, oak-leaf and vein clearing were observed on pomegranate cultivar Hicaz in Hatay province of Turkey in 2013. Three symptomatic out of 23 pomegranate samples reacted to Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 1 (GLRaV-1) antibodies in DAS-ELISA. In order to confirm the presence of GLRaV-1 in(More)
Compliance check between code and design is a labor-intensive job to do, since it requires the code to be reverse engineered and checked versus design manually. On the other hand, investigation of the design-code compliance would give some valuable information to software development and maintenance managers. In this study, an approach for employing(More)
Fig mosaic virus (FMV), which was described recently, is the only characterized causal agent of fig mosaic disease (FMD). It has six RNA segments and belongs to the Bunyaviridae family. In order to determine the genetic diversity of Turkish FMV isolates, the most common fig cultivars showing FMD symptoms were collected from different fig-growing provinces(More)
