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… 

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 at

Plant Viruses Infecting Solanaceae Family Members in the Cultivated and Wild Environments: A Review

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.

Molecular, Cellular, and Structural Biology of Grapevine fanleaf virus

The current knowledge of GFLV is reviewed with a special emphasis on some of its unique features compared to other nepoviruses, as well as the recent progress in regard to new antiviral strategies and suggest future research priorities.

Viroid Diseases in Pome and Stone Fruit Trees and Koch’s Postulates: A Critical Assessment

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.

A new tobamovirus infecting tomato crops in Jordan

Evidence is provided that the whole genome sequence of 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.

Applications of viral metagenomics in the veterinary field

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.

Tobacco mosaic virus: a model system for plant biology.

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.

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.

Low root‐to‐root transmission of a tobamovirus, yellow tailflower mild mottle virus, and resilience of its virions

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.
