Description
The effect of temperate climate on epidemiology of gemini viruses and the differentiation of B tabaci using diagnostic DNA markers.
Objective
The main objectives will be to assess if a northern temperate climate will restrict the spread of whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses (WTG) already endemic in the Mediterranean region and to differentiate biotypes of Bemisia tabaci.
