PathoQuest's chief medical officer noted that standard approaches, such as blood cultures, can often fail to identify a causative organism in patients with febrile neutropenia but iDTECT Blood has demonstrated the ability of improving "the identification of bacteria and RNA and DNA viruses" which could result in "a more precise and rapid determination of the clinically relevant microorganisms."
Begomoviruses are whiteflies-transmitted single-stranded DNA viruses belonging to the family Geminiviridae that cause leaf curl disease in cotton.
They are nonenveloped, double-stranded DNA viruses with a circular structure.
Geminiviruses, a name given due to their twinned icosahedral particles, are single stranded DNA viruses. Geminivirus diseases have greatly affected the agriculture of Asia and Africa, where tomato yellow leaf curl disease, cassava mosaic disease, and maize streak disease have resulted in complete losses in infected fields (Legg and Fauquet, 2004; Shepherd et al., 2010; Sattar et al., 2013).
