A full-length, monomeric genomic clone of cacao swollen shoot badna- virus was infectious after particle bombardment of cacao seeds from which the testae had been removed. The infected plants showed symptoms typical of the severe form of cacao swollen shoot disease. Progeny virus from plants infected by bombardment reacted in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and do(blot hybridization and had small bacilliform particle morphology as observed by immunosorbent electron microscopy.
