Nanoviruses are multipartite single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) plant viruses that cause important diseases of leguminous crops and banana. Little has been known about the variability and molecular evolution of these viruses. Here we report on the variability of faba bean necrotic stunt virus (FBNSV), a nanovirus from Ethiopia. We found mutation frequencies of 7.52 x 10(-4) substitutions per nucleotide in a field population of the virus and 5.07 x 10(-4) substitutions per nucleotide in a laboratory… CONTINUE READING
