Furthermore, it presents the development of plant virus serology, as well as the improved methods of virus isolation that allow the classification of viruses into related groups. The book includes a Bibliography and an Index of Synonyms that can be used in identifying given virus name. In addition, cross-references are included for searching a. Plant viruses have been recognized as plant pathogens for just over years and the number of recognized plant viruses has grown exponentially, in part by the discovery of new virus diseases, in part by the recognition of existing problems as virally caused diseases, in part by the origin of new virus entities and, in part by refining our. There is a serious scientific concern about the transmission of plant viruses sexually through seed and asexually through plant propagules. The present book provides the latest information along with the total list of seed transmitted virus and viroid diseases at global level including, the yield losses, diagnostic techniques, mechanism of seed. Most plant viruses have at least 3 genes: 1 (or more) concerned with replication of the nucleic acid, 1 (or more) concerned with cell-to-cell movement of the virus and 1 (or more) encoding a structural protein that is assembled into the virus particle (usually called the "coat" or "capsid" protein).

Plant virus and sub-viral pathogens pose severe constraints to the production of wide range of economically important crops worldwide. The crops raised both through true seed and vegetative propagated materials are affected with number of virus and virus-like diseases. The virus may enter into plants through seed planting materials or by vectors. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Bawden, Frederick Charles. Plant viruses and virus diseases.

The book includes studies covering plant virus structures and molecular biology of virus infection/replication mechanisms, disease symptoms, host range, phylogenetic relationships, virus detection methods, available viral control strategies, plant immunity against viruses and the development of virus resistant plants, among other : Aleksei Anatoliyovych Stepanenko. Plant viruses are viruses that infect plants. Control of plant viruses is of great economic importance worldwide, because these viruses cause diseases that destroy commercial crops. Like other viruses, a plant virus particle, also known as a virion, is an extremely small infectious : Regina Bailey.

The course covers viruses as causal agents of plant diseases; biological, chemical, and physiological properties of plant viruses; methods of transmission; host-virus and vector-virus relationship and some aspects of molecular virology.
