"Molecular investigations of recombination among crop- and weed-infecting geminiviruses from Jamaica"

Principal Investigators: 
Dr. Marcia Roye
Dr. Wayne McLaughlin

The aim is to find the evolution of geminiviruses in Jamaica. Investigations reveal that the weed virus which infects cabbage has recombined with the cabbage infecting virus resulting in three distinct geminiviruses infecting the cabbage. Our project will further investigate the recombination among the viruses infecting cabbage.
