  • Eggplant (Solanum melongena), which is grown worldwide, is cultivated all year round in Israel. [...] Key Result Virus purification from the infected plants yielded isometric particles, 37–40 nm in diameter. Biological and molecular characterization of the viral agent indicates that it is a new strain of the Eggplant mottled crinkle virus (EMCV-Is) that has been assigned to the Tombusvirus genus.Expand Abstract
