Unlike the vast majority of plant viruses, Cauliflower Mosaic Virus (CaMV) possesses DNA rather than RNA as genetic material. The study of the life cycle of this virus has long been hampered by low virus yields, slow multiplication and lack of adequate systems capable of supporting synchronous multiplication and permitting efficient radiolabelling.
