Abstract

Turnip mosaic virus (TuMV) infects a wide range of plant species, most from the Brassicaceae. It is probably the most widespread and important virus that infects both crop and ornamental species of this family and occurs throughout the world. It is a member of the genus Potyvirus in the family Potyviridae. Potyvirus is the largest genus of the largest family of plant viruses which itself belongs to the picorna-like supergroup of viruses of animals and plants. Despite growing interest in the molecular diagnosis of potyviruses, there have been few attempts to study evolution and migration using a large number of entire nucleotide sequences of a virus species collected around the world. An example of phylodemographically analysis of TuMV is presented here for the future molecular diagnosis.
