Soybean ( L.) is one of the most important crop plants in the Republic of Korea. Here, we conducted a soybean virome study. We harvested a total of 172 soybean leaf samples showing disease symptoms from major soybean-growing regions in the Republic of Korea. Individual samples were examined for virus infection by RT-PCR. Moreover, we generated eight libraries representing eight provinces by pooling samples and four libraries from single samples. RNA-seq followed by bioinformatics analyses revealed 10 different RNA viruses infecting soybean. The proportion of viral reads in each transcriptome ranged from 0.2 to 31.7%. Coinfection of different viruses in soybean plants was very common. There was a single dominant virus in each province, and this geographical difference might be related to the soybean seeds that transmit viruses. In this study, 32 viral genome sequences were assembled and successfully used to analyze the phylogenetic relationships and quasispecies nature of the identified RNA viruses. Moreover, RT-PCR with newly developed primers confirmed infection of the identified viruses in each library. Taken together, our soybean virome study provides a comprehensive overview of viruses infecting soybean in eight geographical regions in the Republic of Korea and four single soybean plants in detail.

Complete genome sequence of peanut virus C, a putative novel ilarvirus.

Arch Virol 2018 Aug 12;163(8):2265-2269. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

We determined the complete genome sequence of a putative novel ilarvirus, tentatively named "peanut virus C" (PVC), identified in peanut (Arachis hypogaea). The three segmented genomic RNA molecules of PVC were 3474 (RNA1), 2925 (RNA2), and 2160 (RNA3) nucleotides in length, with five predicted open reading frames containing conserved domains and motifs that are typical features of ilarviruses. The three genomic RNAs shared nucleotide sequence similarity (74% identity and 93% query coverage for RNA1, 75% identity and 85% query coverage for RNA2, and 72% identity and 70% query coverage for RNA3) with the most closely related ilarvirus, parietaria mottle virus. These results suggest that PVC is a novel member of the genus Ilarvirus in the family Bromoviridae.

Development of multiplex rt-PCR for simultaneous detection of garlic viruses and the incidence of garlic viral disease in garlic genetic resources.

Plant Pathol J 2015 Mar 31;31(1):90-6. Epub 2015 Mar 31.

Garlic generally becomes coinfected with several types of viruses belonging to the Potyvirus, Carlavirus, and Allexivirus genera. These viruses produce characteristically similar symptoms, they cannot be easily identified by electron microscopy (EM) or immunological detection methods, and they are currently widespread around the world, thereby affecting crop yields and crop quality adversely. For the early and reliable detection of garlic viruses, virus-specific sets of primers, including species-specific and genus-specific primers were designed. To effectively detect the twelve different types of garlic viruses, primer mixtures were tested and divided into two independent sets for multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The multiplex PCR assays were able to detect specific targets up to the similar dilution series with monoplex reverse transcription (RT)-PCR. Seventy-two field samples collected by the Gyeongbuk Agricultural Technology Administration were analyzed by multiplex RT-PCR. All seventy two samples were infected with at least one virus, and the coinfection rate was 78%. We conclude that the simultaneous detection system developed in this study can effectively detect and differentiate mixed viral infections in garlic.
