Abstract

A begomovirus associated with yellow mosaic disease in lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) was cloned, sequenced. The virus has a bipartite genome of which DNA-A is 2745 nucleotides length and DNA-B 2669 nucleotides, and has a typical bipartite begomovirus genomic organization from the Old World. The sequences showed the highest levels of nucleotide identity (99.2 % for DNA-A and 98.9 % for the DNA-B) to the 'Indian' strain of Mungbean yellow mosaic India virus (MYMIV).
