Ebook published: ‘Potato virus Y – Biodiversity, pathogenicity, epidemiology and management’

This Springer publication is said to be a timely overview of several decades of research on PVY, one of the most important plant viruses that will appeal to a broad academic audience (universities, public and private funded institutions) and the wide agri-biotech industry (growers, agronomist, breeders, policy). The authors present the latest data (published and yet unpublished) obtained by collaborating scientists (all known as experts on the PVY pathosystem) from different countries worldwide (i.e. members of the PVY-Wide organization). Experts in the field of virology have gathered to present an exhaustive overview of disease symptoms caused by PVY, providing a reference for the laboratory and field scientists and academics. The authors present a roadmap for future PVY research integrating current widely used approaches and novel/emerging technologies that will shape the future of epidemiology, pathology and diagnostic research.
