  • The family Geminiviridae includes plant- infecting circular single-stranded DNA viruses that have geminate particle morphology. Members of this family infect both monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous plants and have a nearly global distribution. With the advent of new molecular tools and low-cost sequencing, there has been a significant increase in the discovery of new gem- iniviruses in various cultivated and non-cultivated plants. In this communication, we highlight the establishment of three… CONTINUE READING
