Potyvirus taxonomy: potyviruses that affect solanaceous crops

Part of the Archives of Virology book series (ARCHIVES SUPPL, volume 5)


Serology has been the main, or at least an important, tool for differentiating potyviruses that affect solanaceous crops. At present, analysis of the genome by hybridization techniques has supported the differentiation of viruses demonstrated be serology. Phylogenetic groupings, based on nucleic acid sequences, should be combined with serological detection to make the groupings more usable.
