Soybean thrips (Neohydatothrips variabilis) are one of the most efficient vectors of soybean vein necrosis virus, which can cause severe necrotic symptoms in sensitive soybean plants. To determine which other viruses are associated with soybean thrips, the metatranscriptome of soybean thrips, collected by the Midwest Suction Trap Network during 2018, was analyzed. Contigs assembled from the data revealed a remarkable diversity of virus-like sequences. Of the 181 virus-like sequences identified… 
Complexity and Local Specificity of the Virome Associated with Tospovirus-Transmitting Thrips Species
The virome associated with the two model systems for tospovirus-transmitting thrips species, of utmost importance for the direct and indirect damage they cause to a number of different crops, is characterized.
Novel viral RNA genomes of the vine mealybug Planococcus ficus.
The results suggest that the identified novel RNA viruses could be insect-specific viruses of Pl. ficus, and guarantees further studies aimed to characterize those viruses with potential for application in biological control of this economically important insect.
Characterization of the Mycovirome from the Plant-Pathogenic Fungus Cercospora beticola
The first identification of highly diverse mycoviruses in C. beticola is identified, which will provide new viral materials to biocontrol Cercospora diseases and will aim to assess the roles of each myCovirus in biological function of C. Beticola in the future.
Possible Arbovirus Found in Virome of Melophagus ovinus
The virome of M. ovinus collected in the Republic of Tuva, Russia is studied to imply that this virus might be able to replicate in mammalian cells, and thus, can be considered as a possible arbovirus.
Discovery of a Novel Member of the Carlavirus Genus from Soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.)
The features of the encoded proteins, low nucleotide and amino acid sequence identities of the replicase with the closest member, and the phylogenetic grouping suggest SCV1 is a new member of the Carlavirus genus.
The Bunyavirales: The Plant-Infecting Counterparts
Negative-strand (-) RNA viruses (NSVs) comprise a large and diverse group of viruses that are generally divided in those with non-segmented and those with segmented genomes. Whereas most NSVs infect

Insects are crucial for ecosystem functions and services and directly influence human well-being and health according to their role in food webs and social behaviour.


Discovery of Known and Novel Viral Genomes in Soybean Aphid by Deep Sequencing
The soybean aphid virome was sampled, and the genome of a new dicistrovirus, Big Sioux River virus, fragments of which had been found previously in honey bee, were sequenced.
Novel RNA viruses within plant parasitic cyst nematodes
Five single-stranded RNA viruses have now been confirmed within the economically important soybean cyst nematode (SCN; Heterodera glycines), and two previously undiscovered viral-like genomes are identified and named.
Discovery and initial analysis of novel viral genomes in the soybean cyst nematode.
It is shown that one plant parasitic nematodes species, Heterodera glycines, the soybean cyst nematode (SCN), harbours four different RNA viruses that are distantly related to nyaviruses and bornavIRuses, rhabdoviruses, bunyaviraluses and tenuiviruses.
Plant Viruses Transmitted by Thrips
All thrips (order Thysanoptera) that are known to be vectors of plant viruses are identified and described and information is presented on viruses, which are thrips-transmitted by mechanical processes, in other genera.

Aphis Glycines Virus 2, a Novel Insect Virus with a Unique Genome Structure
The invasive soybean aphid, Aphis glycines, is a major pest in soybeans, resulting in substantial economic loss and this virus, with its unique genome structure with both plant- and insect-virus characteristics, is of particular interest from an evolutionary standpoint.
Plant rhabdoviruses-their origins and vector interactions.
Alternative Hosts for Soybean vein necrosis virus and Feeding Preferences of Its Vector Soybean Thrips
It is suggested that alternative host crops may harbor SVNV and be a possible source of inoculum for soybean and a dearth of knowledge about alternative host plants for SVNV is investigated.
Effects of Soybean Vein Necrosis Virus on Life History and Host Preference of Its Vector, Neohydatothrips variabilis, and Evaluation of Vector Status of Frankliniella tritici and Frankliniella fusca
Comparison of life history of between the primary and secondary vectors showed that N. variabilis had the highest fecundity, but F. tritici had the shortest development time and greatest larval survival, which may explain the rapid spread of SVNV in the United States.
Diverse Array of New Viral Sequences Identified in Worldwide Populations of the Asian Citrus Psyllid (Diaphorina citri) Using Viral Metagenomics
This study used high-throughput next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology and bioinformatics analysis to identify putative viruses associated with Diaphorina citri, the Asian citrus psyllid, and identified several novel viral sequences associated with D. citri.
