Interspecies transmission is a significant evolutionary event that has allowed a variety of pathogens to invade new host species. We investigated interspecies transmission of viruses between the chestnut blight fungus, Cryphonectria parasitica, and a sympatric unidentified Cryphonectria species in Japan. Two isolates of Cryphonectria sp. were found to contain Cryphonectria hypovirus 1 (CHV-1), which has been typically found in C. parasitica. Three lines of evidence support the hypothesis of… CONTINUE READING
