A new bisegmented dsRNA virus has been detected in shoots of blue spruce with bud blight disease symptoms and infection by Cucurbitaria piceae (Bortw.) fungus. The virus genome consists of two segments that are 2071 and 2257 nt long, encoding the putative RNA polymerase and capsid protein, respectively. Rosellinia necatrix partitivirus 1 is a closely related virus with 45 % amino acid sequence identity in the polymerase, and crimson clover cryptic virus 2 has 36 % amino acid sequence identity… Expand

Evolutionary forces at work in partitiviruses
TLDR
It is proposed that putative positive selection occurs also on the RdRp genes in two viruses and there are indications that reassortants are present among isolates of different viruses. Expand
Gemmamyces bud blight of Picea pungens: a sudden disease outbreak in Central Europe
TLDR
The North American Colorado blue spruce (Picea pungens) has been among the most frequent substitute tree species used in reforestation programmes in spruce mountain forests in the Ore and Sudeten Mountains in the Czech Republic after destruction by sulphur dioxide pollution. Expand

TLDR
There is now a group of dsRNA viruses of lower eucaryotes whose RDRPs are detectably similar to each other, and the origin appears to be common descent from one or more noninfectious viruses of a progenitor cell, an origin that predates the differentiation of protozoans and fungi. Expand

Amplification and direct sequencing of fungal ribosomal RNA genes for phylogenetics
TLDR
The nuclear small-subunit rDNA sequences (16S-like) evolve rela­ tively slowly and are useful for studying distantly related organisms, whereas the mitochondrial rRNA genes evolve more rapidly and can be useful at the ordinal or family level. Expand
Extraction of Double-Stranded RNA from Plant Tissues Without the Use of Organic Solvents
TLDR
The SDS/KOAc method produced comparable yields and purity of dsRNA products compared to the phenol/chloroform method and is considered a convenient, effective alternative for isolating dsRNAs from plant tissues. Expand
