scientific study - rose virus paper
Published in Archives of Virology, May 2014.
Title: Complete nucleotide sequence of rose yellow leaf virus, a new member of the family Tombusviridae
Authors: Dimitre Mollov, Ben Lockhart, David C. Zlesak
Unfortunately,the abstract contains very little (if anything) of interest to most rose growers (in my opinion).
I expected that the Minnesota group was going to prepare a description of their rose virus research which would include such things as typical symptoms, method of spread, effects on growth, etc. However, nothing so far as I can determine has appeared.
For another rose virus that they discovered, the following was stated: "Yes we have a transmission paper in the works with pictures of symptoms and other details that would be useful to those especially in plant disease clinics to confidently identify plants with it."
Also, as far as I can determine, the 2012 Ph.D. thesis has not been released to the public.
