Molecular & biological characterization of Cucurbit Aphid-Born Yellows Virus (CABYV) causing the Namamarako Syndrome in ampalaya

submitted by: UP Los Baños

A report on the project aimed to (1) collect and isolate different CABYV isolates from major ampalaya production areas; (2) characterize the different isolates using biological and molecular methods; and (3) determine the genetic variation of CABYV, the causal pathogen of NMK disease of ampalaya in the Philippines.
