A putative circular single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) virus was recovered from Hypericum japonicum collected in Vietnam. The viral isolate was tentatively named Hypericum japonicum-associated circular DNA virus (HJasCV). HJasCV shares 58.7-65.4% nucleotide sequence identity with Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirulence-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1) and(More)
Virus isolate G10 was obtained from diseased allamanda plants showing leaf curl symptoms in Guangdong, China. The full-length nucleotide sequence of a DNA-A-like molecule of G10 was cloned and sequenced; it comprises 2755 nucleotides and has a typical begomovirus genome organization with six conserved open reading frames. When compared with the DNA-A(More)
The complete genome sequence of a monopartite begomovirus isolate TY01 was obtained from diseased Pouzolzia zeylanica plants exhibiting golden mosaic symptoms in Baise, Guangxi Province, China. It consisted of 2723 nucleotides (nt) and encoded two ORFs (CP and AV2) in the virion-sense DNA and five ORFs (AC1-AC5) in the complementary-sense DNA. Compared with(More)
RNA silencing is a conserved mechanism in plants that targets viruses. Viral small RNAs (vsiRNAs) can be generated from viral double-stranded RNA replicative intermediates within the infected host, or from host RNA-dependent RNA polymerases activity on viral templates. The abundance and profile of vsiRNAs in viral infections have been reported previously.(More)
A begomovirus isolate VN1 associated with symptomatic Hedyotis uncinella Hook. et Arn. from Vietnam was characterized. The virus, which we provisionally name H. uncinella yellow mosaic virus (HUYMV), has a monopartite genome of 2,749 nucleotides (nts). Pairwise comparisons of DNA-A sequences showed that HUYMV had a maximum nt sequence identity with Soybean(More)
Ralstonia solanacearum species complex is a devastating group of phytopathogens with an unusually wide host range and broad geographical distribution. R. solanacearum isolates may differ considerably in various properties including host range and pathogenicity, but the underlying genetic bases remain vague. Here, we conducted the genome sequencing of strain(More)
The goal of the GINSENG project is a performancecontrolled sensor network suitable for time-critical applications like plant automation and control. Such sensor networks must monitor performance constantly and collect data in order to detect, diagnose and rectify problems. The GINSENG system contains a number of mechanisms used to collect, transport and(More)
Ralstonia solanacearum species complex is a devastating phytopathogen with an unusually wide host range, and new host plants are continuously being discovered. In June 2016, a new bacterial wilt on Cucurbita maxima was observed in Guangdong province, China. Initially, in the adult plant stage, several leaves of each plant withered suddenly and drooped; the(More)
