Virus Taxonomy
Taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae and other recent progress in partitivirus research.
The focus of this review is the taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae (encapsidated, bisegmented dsRNA viruses that infect plants, fungi, or protozoa), as well as redistribution of species among these new genera. Expand
Viruses of plant pathogenic fungi.
Select mycoviruses that cause debilitating diseases and/or reduce the virulence of their phytopathogenic fungal hosts are discussed and such fungal-virus systems are valuable for the development of novel biocontol strategies and for gaining an insight into the molecular basis of fungal virulence. Expand
50-plus years of fungal viruses.
Although many mycoviruses do not have marked effects on their hosts, those that reduce the virulence of their phytopathogenic fungal hosts are of considerable interest for development of novel biocontrol strategies. Expand

The discovery of an ssDNA mycovirus from the plant pathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum enhances the potential of exploring fungal viruses as valuable tools for molecular manipulation of fungi and for plant disease control and expands the knowledge of global virus ecology and evolution.

Production of transgenic soybean lines expressing the bean pod mottle virus coat protein precursor gene
Soybean cotyledonary nodes were transformed with bean pod mottle virus (BPMV) coat protein precursor (CP-P) gene via Agrobacterium-mediated transformation, suggesting that homozygous, but not hemizygous, plants exhibit the resistant phenotype. Expand
Development of Bean pod mottle virus-based vectors for stable protein expression and sequence-specific virus-induced gene silencing in soybean.
The results suggest that the BPMV-based vectors are suitable for expression of foreign proteins in soybean and for functional genomics applications. Expand
Ratification vote on taxonomic proposals to the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2015)
Changes to virus taxonomy approved and ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses in February 2015 are listed.
Bean pod mottle virus: A Threat to U.S. Soybean Production.
The recent BPMV outbreak is linked to the warm winters of the past few years that have allowed the beetle vectors to overwinter and emerge in the spring in unprecedented numbers. Expand
