An Iranian genomic sequence of Beet mosaic virus provides insights into diversity and evolution of the world population

Mohammadi, Musa; Gibbs, Adrian; Hosseini, Ahmad; Hosseini, Samin


Beet mosaic virus (BtMV), the only Potyvirus known to infect sugar beet, occurs worldwide in beet crops. The full genome sequencing of a BtMV isolate from Iran (Ir-VRU), enabled us to better understand the evolutionary history of this virus. Selection analysis suggested that BtMV evolution is mainly under negative selection but its strength varies in different proteins with the multifunctional proteins under strongest selection. Recombination has played a major role in the evolution of the...[Show more]
