Mycoviruses are the viruses that infect fungi and prevalent in all major groups of plant pathogenic and edible fungi. The first mycovirus was reported in 1962 from the cultivated mushroom (Agaricus bisporus); the infected mushrooms developed malformed fruiting bodies, grow slowly, mature early and resulting in serious yield losses. Although the majority of known mycoviruses have dsRNA genomes that are packaged in isometric particles, but there are also some reports of DNA mycoviruses. These are… CONTINUE READING
