Abstract

Characterization of novel potyviruses occurring in grasses of the genus Festuca and Dactylis in Germany. For both viruses whose, genome organization is typical of monopartite potyviruses, the complete genome sequence was determined. Based on the phylogenetic analysis, these 2 viruses are assigned to the new generation Tritimovirus Genus Poacevirus. For the two new viruses, the names of Cocksfoot streak mosaic virus and Festuca necrotic streak virus are proposed.
