Begomovirus disease complex: emerging threat to vegetable production systems of West and Central Africa
Vegetables play a major role in the livelihoods of the rural poor in Africa. Among major constraints to vegetable production worldwide are diseases caused by a group of viruses belonging to the genusExpand
Molecular characterization of a new begomovirus and divergent alphasatellite from tomato in Cameroon
Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a crop of growing importance throughout West and Central Africa. Recently, several begomoviruses (genus Begomovirus; family Geminiviridae) have been associated withExpand
Molecular characterization of begomoviruses and DNA satellites associated with okra leaf curl disease in Cameroon.
Okra leaf curl disease (OLCD) is the most important viral disease of okra in West Africa. In this study, a complex of begomoviruses and associated DNA satellites were identified in symptomatic okraExpand
Factors influencing the adoption intensity of improved yam (Dioscorea spp.) seed technology in the western highlands and high guinea savannah zones of Cameroon.
Objective : Yam ( Dioscorea spp.) is one of the staple tubers consumed by most households in West and Central African countries. It exists in many varieties and forms and could also be consumed in aExpand
Ageratum conyzoides: a host to a unique begomovirus disease complex in Cameroon.
Ageratum conyzoides (goat weed) is a widespread uncultivated species in Cameroon that exhibits leaf curl disease (LCD) symptoms suggestive of begomovirus infection. In Asia, differentExpand
Detection of Tomato yellow leaf curl virus in imported tomato fruit in northern Europe
Imported tomato fruits infected with Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) were identified on the market in northern Europe using paper-based FTA Classic Cards (Whatman), polymerase chain reactionExpand
Molecular epidemiology of begomoviruses that infect vegetable crops in southwestern Cameroon
Begomoviruses are plant-infecting viruses, which are transmitted by the whitefly vector Bemisia tabaci. They have a genome of single-stranded DNA that consists of either a single (monopartite) or twoExpand
Complete genome sequence of a new bipartite begomovirus infecting cotton in the Republic of Benin in West Africa
Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a novel bipartite begomovirus isolated from cotton plants (Gossypium raimondii, Malvaceae) exhibiting light yellow mosaic symptoms. The genome sequenceExpand
