At present isolates of Hop stunt viroid (HSVd) are divided into five groups: three major groups (plum-type, hop-type and citrus-type) each containing isolates from only a limited number of isolation hosts and two minor groups that were presumed to derive from recombination events between members of the main groups. In this work we present the characterization of 16 new sequence variants of HSVd obtained from four Mediterranean countries (Cyprus, Greece, Morocco and Turkey) where this viroid had… CONTINUE READING
