 Tomato leaf curl virus (ToLCV) is a whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) transmitted geminivirus (family Geminiviridae, genus Begomovirus) causing a destructive disease of tomato in many regions of India, East Asia and Australia. While ToLCV isolates from Australia and Taiwan have a single genomic component (designated DNA-A), those from Northern India have two components (DNA-A and DNA-B). The ToLCV isolates from Southern India (Bangalore) previously cloned seem to have a DNA-A-like monopartite genome… CONTINUE READING
