An attempt for managing the Plant Viral diseases at Viral Genome expression level
Tobacco Streak Virus is one of the emerging devastating Plant Virus comes under Ilar virus family and causing huge yield loss in sunflower, cotton and other crops. The peculiar symptoms of the plants infection includes the necrotic lesions. The 2b like genes in other virus of Ilar virus are key responsible for causing this necrotic lesions as well as playing an important role in RNA silencing Suppressor activity. Hence i am currently working to find out Whether Tobacco Streak Virus 2b gene plays a role on Suppressor as well as necrotic lesions factor and management related studies.
