Most are too small to be seen by anything but a microscope and they infect all organisms from animals to plants to bacteria. The first one discovered was the tobacco virus in 1898. Since then around 5,000 viruses have been described in detail although there are millions of different types. They are found in...

Potato virus Y (PVY) is a plant pathogenic virus of the family Potyviridae. It is one of the most important plant viruses affecting potatoes. Infection results in various symptoms depending on the strain. Production loss is the most mild of the symptoms and "˜potato tuber necrotic ringspot disease' is the worst. Ringspot renders potatoes unmarketable and can therefore result in a major loss of income. Aphid vectors transmit PVY but it can also remain dormant in seed potatoes. The South...
