Nucleotide sequence relationships among thirty peanut stunt virus isolates determined by competition hybridization

  • J. R. Díaz-Ruiz

Brief Report


The nucleotide sequence homology among 30 peanut stunt virus (PSV) isolates was determined. The isolates divided into two groups with little homology between them but extensive homology among their members. Only one isolate had nonoverlapping partial homology with both groups.
