The phylogeny of Turnip mosaic virus ; comparisons of 38 genomic sequences reveal a Eurasian origin and a recent emergence in east Asia

Tomimura, Kenta; Gibbs, Adrian; Jenner, Carol; Walsh, John; Ohshima, Kazusato


The genomes of a representative world-wide collection of 32 Turnip mosaic virus (TuMV) isolates were sequenced and these, together with six previously reported sequences, were analysed. At least one-fifth of the sequences were recombinant. In phylogenetic analyses, using genomic sequences of Japanese yam mosaic virus as an outgroup, the TuMV sequences that did not show clear recombination formed a monophyletic group with four well-supported lineages. These groupings correlated with differences...[Show more]
