  • Projects

    Construction of infectious clone of Indian citrus ringspot virus of Punjab isolates and identificati(NONE)
    ICRSV present in the citrus growing areas through-out in India. All citrus species are affected due to the ICRSV including the commercial citrus fruit sweet oranges and kinnow mandarin oranges. The genome sequence of ICRSV of Delhi and Pune isolate from the sweet oranges has been completed. The kinnow mandarin oranges are highly susceptible to the ICRSV and infection has been reported upto 100%. However, no molecular study on ICRSV Punjab isolate has been conducted.
