Fungal Transmission of Plant Viruses.

Rochon, D. (2009). "Fungal Transmission of Plant Viruses.", Current Protocols in Microbiology, 16B(Suppl. 12), pp. 4.1-4.17. doi : 10.1002/9780471729259.mc16b04s12  Access to full text


Fungal zoospores of Olpidium species transmit several viruses in the family Tombusviridae as well as in the Ophio- and Varicosavirus genera. This unit describes procedures for virus transmission by Olpidium sp. The method is useful for assessing fungal transmissibility of a given virus as well as for further studies on molecular and biological aspects of virus/vector interaction.
