Pepper mild mottle virus (PMMoV) is one of the most destructive pathogens of pepper crops and has major impacts on global crop yields. Some aspects of the molecular biology of PMMoV have been studied intensively, but estimates of its evolutionary rate have shown considerable variation. We investigated the phylodynamics of PMMoV by analysing 171 nucleotide sequences of the coat protein gene, sampled between 1980 and 2016. Read More
