CAPS Analysis: A Possible Tool to Detect and Group Geminiviruses Infecting Some Fibre Crops and Weeds

A. Chatterjee, A. Roy, and S. K. Ghosh

February 2009


Some fibre crops and weeds, showing typical symptoms caused by begomoviruses, were subjected to PCR amplification using different sets of primers specific for DNA A and DNA β molecules of begomoviruses. Restriction digestion of full length DNA A and DNA β using different enzymes revealed variation in restriction profiles amongst the virus isolates in the present study. Moreover, variation in the restriction profile of different DNA β molecule with that of their corresponding reported sequences were also noticed.
