Techniques in Plant Virology
Part of the Tertiary Level Biology book series (TLB)
Let us imagine that we have been presented with diseased plant material and asked to identify the causative agent. If we also imagine that tests have shown that no fungal, bacterial or mycoplasmal pathogens are responsible for the symptoms, neither are they the result of nutrient imbalance or pest or spray damage, how then can we
determine that a virus or viruses are involved, and
identify the virus?
