About this book

Special attention is given to recombination in plants expressing sequences of RNA or DNA viruses, heterologous encapsidation or other forms of complementation in plants expressing coat protein genes, potential deleterious effects of satellite RNAs associated with cucumber mosaic virus, and sexual transmission of virus resistance genes to potentially weedy relatives.


Evolution; the past, a window on the future?-Systematic search for recombination events in plant viruses and viroids- Different mechanisms of homologous and nonhomologous recombination in brome mosaic virus-Studies on RNA recombination in vivo and in vitro-RNA recombination in viral protein mediated virus resistant transgenic plants- Transgenic plants expressing viral sequences create a favourable environment for recombination between viral sequences-Behaviour of cucumovirus pseudorecombinant and recombinant strains in solanaceous hosts-
