I've been working with human, animal, and plant viruses for more than 10 years.
Among the topics are the widespread occurrence and potential biological roles of endogenous viral elements in insect genomes, sensing viral infections in insects: a dearth of pathway receptors, looking through the lens of 'omics technologies: insights into the transmission of insect vector-borne plant viruses, developments in tetravirus research: new insight into the infectious virus life cycle and an expanding host range, recent developments in the use of baculovirus expression vectors, and baculovirus as versatile vectors for protein display and biotechnological applications.
They are known as vectors of a large number of plant viruses, being the begomoviruses the main group of viruses associated with whiteflies (Navas-Castillo, Fiallo-Olive, & SanchezCampos, 2011).
The plant viruses can be successfully eliminated by knowing the mechanism of mode of replication and of virus within the plant (Awan et al., 2005).
Furthermore, the fact that the technique has now been validated in a plant virology laboratory paves the way for real-time, mobile detection of chronic, seasonal or emerging plant viruses, in isolated areas as well.
The production and yield of tobacco have been seriously affected by the invasion of emerging and recurrent plant viruses with symptoms such as venial necrosis, mosaic, mottling, yellowing, ring spots, stunting, shoestring and deformation (Ding et al., 2010; Wang et al., 2016).
The concentration of plant viruses typically changes over the course of a year, and GLRaVs are no exception.
Its only crime was to enter the hearts and brains of voters to plant viruses there contagious enough to turn them into rabid political supporters of Mr Kenyatta.
Since plant viruses and virus-like particles (VLPs) are essentially safe for humans they seem promising for technological advances in a broad range of areas from microelectronics to developing candidate vaccines and adjuvants [5, 6].

Aphis nasturtii (Kaltenbach) is a cosmopolitan species who can cause direct damage to the plants by extracting the sap, and indirectly it is a vector to 16 plant viruses. The study presents data referring to the external morphological characteristics, to the biometrical measurements and to the life cycle of Aphis nasturtii.
