In a previous work, a distinct tymovirus infecting tomato plants in Brazil was reported and tentatively named tomato blistering mosaic virus (ToBMV). In this study, the complete genome sequence of ToBMV was determined and shown to have a size of 6277 nucleotides and three ORFs: ORF 1 encodes the replication-complex polyprotein, ORF 2 the movement protein, and ORF 3 the coat protein. The cleavage sites of the replication-complex polyprotein (GS/LP and VAG/QSP) of ToBMV were predicted by… 
A highly divergent isolate of tomato blistering mosaic virus from Solanum violaefolium
The sequence analysis of this ToBMV isolate suggests that the demarcation criterion of 80 % overall genome sequence identity in the genus Tymovirus may require revision.
Cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus from melon plants in Brazil is an interspecific recombinant
Melon plants with severe yellowing symptoms from in Brazil were analyzed by high-throughput sequencing and a molecular-clock analysis suggested that CABYV was introduced into Brazil 68 years ago.
Chloroplast Proteome of Nicotiana benthamiana Infected by Tomato Blistering Mosaic Virus
This work investigated the chloroplast proteomic profile of ToBMV-infected N. benthamiana using bidimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) and mass spectrometry to study the virus-host interaction related to the virus replication and infection, and identified proteins that may be targets of a direct interaction with viral proteins.

Characterization of a novel tymovirus on tomato plants in Brazil
A tymovirus was isolated in Brazil from tomato plants with severe symptoms of leaf mosaic and blistering, which suggested that it can be considered as a distinct member of the genus Tymovirus.
Complete Genome Sequence of a Tobacco-Infecting, Tomato-Blistering Mosaic Virus
The complete genome sequence of a new tomato-blistering mosaic virus (ToBMV) isolate was determined and it shares 88% nucleotide identity with the ToBMV isolated from tomato.
A distinct tymovirus infecting Cassiahoffmannseggii in Brazil
Based on the current ICTV demarcation criterion, this isolate was considered as a distinct tymovirus and tentatively named as Cassia yellow mosaic-associated virus.
The family Tymoviridae
The family Tymoviridae comprises the genus Tymvirus, from which it derives its name, the genus Marafivirus and the newly established genus Maculavirus, which contains one tentative species.
Proteolytic Processing of Turnip Yellow Mosaic Virus Replication Proteins and Functional Impact on Infectivity
It is demonstrated that TYMV proteinase mediates an additional cleavage between the PRO and HEL domains of the polyprotein, generating the 115K protein and a 42K protein encompassing the HEL domain that can be detected in plant cells using a specific antiserum.
A strain of eggplant mosaic virus isolated from naturally infected tobacco plants in Brazil
A tymovirus was isolated from Nicotiana tabacum plants with mosaic symptoms from a commercial plantation in Brazil and was found to be serologically identical to TWN strain of EMV although it differed from this virus in some biological properties, i.e., its ability to systemically infect Nicotian Tabacum cultivars and its inability to cause systemic symptoms in tomato.
Petunia vein banding virus: Characterization of a New Tymovirus from Petunia × hybrida.
Petunia vein banding virus was transmitted only with difficulty to healthy petunia plants, however, from an experimentally infected petu-nia, it was later readily transmitted also to Nicotiana benthamiana and Nicandra physalodes, but not to other species in the Solanaceae or other plant families.
RDP3: a flexible and fast computer program for analyzing recombination
RDP3 is a new version of the RDP program for characterizing recombination events in DNA-sequence alignments that includes four new recombination analysis methods, new tests for recombination hot-spots, and a range of matrix methods for visualizing over-all patterns of recombination within datasets and recombination-aware ancestral sequence reconstruction.
The staden sequence analysis package
The current version of the sequence analysis package developed at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology is described, which has come to be known as the “Staden Package,” and provides powerful tools for DNA sequence determination.
MEGA6: Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis version 6.0.
An advanced version of the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis software, which currently contains facilities for building sequence alignments, inferring phylogenetic histories, and conducting molecular evolutionary analysis, is released, which enables the inference of timetrees, as it implements the RelTime method for estimating divergence times for all branching points in a phylogeny.
