Ongoing research

In plant virology, our research is related to plum pox virus (PPV) and other viruses of the family virus causing serious damages in stone fruits. We also investigate viral diseases of ornamental plants and garlic. Scientific and practical results related to: the characterization, functioning, recombination ability, evolutionary changes, diagnostic of the pathogens, development of resistance, the biodiversity of potyviruses, the molecular background of the symptomatic differences caused by individual isolates, the host specificity, the interspecific recombination of viruses within the potyvirus genus.
