Complete nucleotide sequence of a new double-stranded RNA virus from the rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae

Abstract

Magnaporthe oryzae B. Couch (formerly Magnaporthe grisea (Hebert) Barr) [3] is the causal agent of the devastating rice blast disease [6]. This filamentous fungus is being studied intensively as a principal model organism for understanding plantfungus interactions. Virus-like particles (VLPs) were previously detected in two M. oryzae strains (TH 65-105 and… (More)
