"A new virus resembling members in the genus Carlavirus was identified in an Out of Yesteryear rose (Rosa sp.) by high-throughput sequencing. The virus was discovered during the screening of a rose virus collection belonging to Foundation Plant Services (UC-Davis)."

"Based on genome organization, sequence identity, and phylogenetic analysis, the virus found in the Out of Yesteryear plant represents a new member of the genus Carlavirus and is provisionally named "rose virus B" (RVB). Further testing by reverse transcription PCR confirmed the presence of RVB in the original source and seven additional rose selections from the same collection."
