As part of an investigation into viruses of wild plants in Australia, a contiguous sequence of 3935 nucleotides was obtained after shotgun sequencing of RNA isolated from an asymptomatic wild legume, Gompholobium preissii. Phylogenetic analysis of the sequence revealed that it most closely resembled that of Trailing lespedeza virus 1 (TLV1), a virus isolated from a wild legume in America. The proposed virus, named Gompholobium virus A, and TLV1 are genetically closest to viruses in the genera…

Discovery of Known and Novel Viruses in Wild and Cultivated Blueberry in Florida through Viral Metagenomic Approaches
This study has enabled the identification of blueberry latent virus and blueberry mosaic associated ophiovirus for the first time in Florida, as well as a tentative novel tepovirus (blueberry virus T) (BlVT) in blueberry.


Characterization of the first two viruses described from wild populations of hammer orchids (Drakaeaspp.) in Australia
Two virus isolates infecting wild plants of two members of the genus Drakaea (hammer orchids) in Western Australia are described and are proposed to have an ancient association with their orchid hosts.
Yellow tailflower mild mottle virus: a new tobamovirus described from Anthocercis littorea (Solanaceae) in Western Australia
Phylogenetic analysis and the deduced architecture of the genome place the virus, provisionally named yellow tailflower mild mottle virus, with other tobamoviruses that infect solanaceous hosts.

Pelarspovirus, a proposed new genus in the family Tombusviridae
A new genus, tentatively named Pelarspovirus, is proposed to be added to the family Tombusviridae and would include five members, with Pelargonium line pattern virus recommended as the type species.

Taxonomic revision of Gompholobium (Leguminosae: Mirbelieae)
A taxonomic revision is presented of the Australasian legume genus Gompholobium, with the new epithet recognising the unique blue standard and wings of this species.
A whole genome perspective on the phylogeny of the plant virus family Tombusviridae
A singular value decomposition (SVD)-based analysis is used to generate phylogenetic trees using whole genome protein sequences from a family of single-stranded RNA plant viruses, which agrees well with current taxonomic classifications, but with significant exceptions.
Differential Responses to Virus Challenge of Laboratory and Wild Accessions of Australian Species of Nicotiana, and Comparative Analysis of RDR1 Gene Sequences
The most striking difference was that plants of a laboratory accession of N. benthamiana RA-4 exhibited hypersensitivity to Yellow tailflower mild mottle tobamovirus infection and died, whereas plants of wild N.benthamiana accessions responded with non-necrotic symptoms.
Plant Virus Metagenomics: Advances in Virus Discovery.
These studies reveal a surprising lack of knowledge about plant viruses and point to the need for more comprehensive studies, which are providing useful tools to detect viruses, and perhaps to predict future problems that could threaten cultivated plants.
