Molecular characterization and population structure of blackberry vein banding associated virus, new Ampelovirus associated with yellow vein disease.
TLDR
Significant intra-species variation without any clustering among isolates based on their geographic origin is revealed and it is indicated that these proteins are under stringent purifying selections.
A new ophiovirus is associated with blueberry mosaic disease.
TLDR
A combination of traditional methods and next generation sequencing disclosed the presence of a new ophiovirus in symptomatic plants, which was detected in all BMD samples collected from several production areas of North America and was thus named blueberry mosaic associated virus.
Molecular Characterization of Divergent Closterovirus Isolates Infecting Ribes Species
TLDR
Five isolates of a new member of the family Closteroviridae, tentatively named blackcurrant leafroll-associated virus 1 (BcLRaV-1), were identified in the currant, andylogenetic and recombination analysis provided evidence of intraspecies recombination.
Population structure of blueberry mosaic associated virus: Evidence of reassortment in geographically distinct isolates.
TLDR
The population structure of blueberry mosaic associated virus (BlMaV), a putative member of the family Ophioviridae, was examined using isolates collected from North America and Slovenia and indicated the possible role of genetic exchange in the evolution of BlMaV.
Development of reliable detection assays for blueberry mosaic- and blackberry vein banding- associated viruses based on their population structures.
TLDR
These detection tests provide sensitivity and specificity and will serve as the protocols of choice for virus screening in Vaccinium and Rubus certification programs in the United States and elsewhere and will be valuable in avoiding virus introductions to new areas.
Soybean Thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) Harbor Highly Diverse Populations of Arthropod, Fungal and Plant Viruses
TLDR
Assessment of the virome of soybean thrips provides, for the first time, information on the diversity of viruses present in thrips, and suggests they feed on and acquire viruses from multiple host plant species that could be transmitted to soybean.
Transmission attributes and resistance to rose rosette virus
TLDR
The identified resistant genotype would be used in areas with high disease pressure to minimize spread, for identification of the mechanisms behind resistance or as breeding parent to incorporate virus resistance to new cultivars.
Characterization and detection of a novel idaeovirus infecting blackcurrant
TLDR
The genome organization, sequence and phylogenetic analyses indicate that the virus is a putative new member of the genus Idaeovirus, as it consistently groups with privet leaf blotch-associated virus and raspberry bushy dwarf virus.
Blackcurrant waikavirus A, a new member of the genus Waikavirus, and its phylogenetic and molecular relationship with other known members
TLDR
In-silico analysis of the genome of the virus, blackcurrant waikavirus A (BCWVA), predicted two open reading frames (ORFs), which showed the highest amino acid identities with the bellflower vein chlorosis virus orthologs and phylogenetic analysis based on the conserved RdRp region of the members of Secoviridae grouped BCWVA within the genus Waikav virus.
