Detailed characterizations of plant viruses threatening cultivated and non-cultivated plants have been under develop in order to understand virus relationships and support plan-breeding programs. In collaboration with UPR and governmental agencies colleagues we are working on the characterization of DNA and RNA plant viruses affecting cucurbits, beans, ornamentals, fruit trees. Plant virus collection was established in 2006 and has been enhanced by additional barcoding of plant species as well as GIS data from samples locations.
