Dimitre and Maher do such great work and it is nice they are mentoring others in these techniques. I'm grateful they continue to do virus discovery work with roses, especially when it is generally easier for them to secure money to characterize new viruses in other crops.

What I am particularly interested in include:


A picture of what the infected leaves look like.


A discussion of how the virus is transmitted.
