Molecular characterization of Citrus mosaic badnavirus

The genome (dsDNA) of Citrus mosaic badnavirus (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) which causes a common citrus disease in India, has been completely sequenced. This information will be useful to study relationships between Citrus mosaic badnavirus and other badnaviruses, genetic variability within CYMV, and to develop diagnostic tools.
