Molecular Evolution of the Plant Virus Family Bromoviridae Based on RNA3-Encoded Proteins


We have carried out an evolutionary study of the two proteins encoded by the RNA 3 from members of the plant virus family Bromoviridae. Using maximum likelihood methods, we have inferred the patterns of amino acid substitution that better explain the diversification of this viral family. The results indicate that the molecular evolution of this family was… (More)
