Potato virus Y (PVY), the type member of the genus Potyvirus, is transmitted by aphids and can cause severe damage in several solanaceous family crops. In Nicotiana tabacum, a large genome deletion conferring resistance to PVY, the va gene, is commonly used. This resistance is unfortunately associated with lower tobacco quality parameters, potentially due… CONTINUE READING
