Evidence of pervasive biologically functional secondary structures within the Genomes of Eukaryotic Single-Stranded DNA Viruses
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013)
Single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) viruses have genomes that are potentially capable of forming complex secondary structures through Watson-Crick base pairing between their constituent nucleotides. A few of the structural elements ...
Avihepadnavirus diversity in parrots is comparable to that found amongst all other avian species
Avihepadna viruses have previously been isolated from various species of duck ,goose, stork, heron and crane. Recently the first parrot avihepadna virus was isolated from a Ring-necked Parakeet in Poland. In this study, ...
Evidence that dicot-infecting mastreviruses are particularly prone to inter-species recombination and have likely been circulating in Australia for longer than in Africa and the Middle East
Viruses of the genus Mastrevirus (family Geminiviridae) are transmitted by leafhoppers and infect either mono- or dicotyledonous plants. Here we have determined the full length sequences of 49 dicot-infecting mastrevirus ...
Extensive recombination detected among beak and feather disease virus isolates from breeding facilities in Poland
(Microbiology Society, 2013)
Beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) causes the highly contagious, in some cases fatal, psittacine beak and feather disease in parrots. The European continent has no native parrots, yet in the past has been one of the ...
