  • Seedborne peanut viruses pose important constraints to peanut production and safe movement of germ plasm. They also pose a risk of accidental introduction into previously disease-free regions. We have developed reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays based on identical cycling parameters which identified peanut stripe, Peanut mottle, Peanut stunt, and Cucumber mosaic viruses through production of specific DNA fragments of 234 bp, 327 bp, 390 bp, and 133 bp, respectively… CONTINUE READING
