Genomic characterization of Malus domestica virus A (MdoVA), a novel velarivirus infecting apple
- 55 Downloads
Screening of apple samples using a high-throughput sequencing (HTS) approach led to the discovery of a novel virus, tentatively named “Malus domestica virus A” (MdoVA). Its genomic organisation and phylogenetic relationship showed relatedness to viruses of the genus Velarivirus in the family Closteroviridae. It is not clear whether MdoVA has any impact on its host, as the analysed apple tree contained other viruses and a viroid.
