These include Dioscorea bacilliform virus (genus Badnavirus) [3] and the potyviruses yam mosaic virus [2], yam mild mosaic virus [7] and yam chlorotic necrotic mosaic virus [22], which form bacilliform and filamentous virions, respectively. In 1998, a virus with isometric particles, referred to here as… CONTINUE READING
