Characterization of the first two viruses described from wild populations of hammer orchids (Drakaea spp.) in Australia

Ong, J.W.L.; Phillips, Ryan; Dixon, Kingsley; Jones, Michael G K; Wylie, S.J.


Sequences representing the genomes of two distinct virus isolates infecting wild plants of two members of the genus Drakaea (hammer orchids) in Western Australia are described. The virus isolated from Drakaea livida has a bipartite genome of 4490 nt (RNA1) and 2905 nt (RNA2) that shares closest sequence and structural similarity to members of the genus Pecluvirus, family Virgaviridae, described from legumes in the Indian subcontinent and West Africa. However, it differs from pecluviruses by...[Show more]
