In 1885 Mr. Adolf Mayer2 showed that the mosaic or leaf-spot” disease of the tobacco plant is contagious. He pressed the sap from diseased plants, introduced it into capillary tubes, and pierced these into the leaves and stems of healthy plants growing out in the open. After a few weeks the latter were then attacked by the spot disease. He himself could not find any bacteria or other parasites in the diseased leaves through microscopic inspection. I was at that time Mr. Mayer’s colleague at the… Expand
The Discovery of the Causal Agent of the Tobacco Mosaic Disease
The discovery of the causal agent of the disease causing mosaic and distortion on tobacco plants, with the concomitant realization that the etiologic agent was something unique - a virus - came atExpand
Plant Viruses Infecting Solanaceae Family Members in the Cultivated and Wild Environments: A Review
TLDR
Solanaceae plant communities can be targeted to address complete life cycles of viruses with different life strategies within the agro-ecological interface as global changes affect these environments on both local and global scales. Expand
Viroid Diseases in Pome and Stone Fruit Trees and Koch’s Postulates: A Critical Assessment
TLDR
Pome and stone fruit tree diseases, conclusively proven to be caused by viroids, are reviewed, and the need to pay closer attention to fulfilling Koch’s postulates is emphasized. Expand
A new tobamovirus infecting tomato crops in Jordan
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a new tobamovirus isolated from tomato plants grown in greenhouses in Jordan during the spring of 2015 is identified, for which the name “tomato brown rugose fruit virus” is proposed. Expand
Plant virus taxonomy
TLDR
The current totals at each taxonomic level now stand at 9 orders, 131 families, 46 subfamilies, 803 genera, and 4853 species, approved and ratified by the ICTV in February 2018. Expand
Applications of viral metagenomics in the veterinary field
TLDR
Viral metagenomics have successfully been applied to investigate three important areas of interest for veterinary science and through these studies three novel viruses were discovered and genetically characterized. Expand
Tobacco mosaic virus: a model system for plant biology.
  • K. Scholthof
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annual review of phytopathology
  • 2004
TLDR
The history of TMV illustrates how pragmatic strategies to control an economically important disease of tobacco have had unexpected and transforming effects across platforms that impinge on plant health and public health. Expand
Virologists are “Symbionts” in Microbial Ecology
  • K. Takai
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Microbes and environments
  • 2016
TLDR
This research highlight introduces trends in environmental virology and current topics achieved by virologists who are establishing a kind of " symbiotic " relationship with microbial ecologists. Expand
Low root‐to‐root transmission of a tobamovirus, yellow tailflower mild mottle virus, and resilience of its virions
TLDR
Root-to-root transmission occurred rarely, and when it occurred plants did not exhibit systemic movement of the virus from the roots to the shoots over a 30-day period, indicating resilience of YTMMV virions. Expand
Plant Virus Diversity and Evolution
TLDR
This chapter discusses the state of the knowledge of virus diversity, both in agricultural systems as well as in native wild systems, the border between these two systems and how viruses adapt and move across this border into an artificial, domesticated environment. Expand
