Fungal Transmission of Plant Viruses.
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.
