Abstract

The badnavirus taro bacilliform virus (TaBV) has been reported to infect taro (Colocasia esculenta L.) and other edible aroids in several South Pacific island countries, but there are no published reports from Australia. Using PCR and RCA, we identified and characterized an Australian TaBV isolate. A terminally redundant cloned copy of the TaBV genome was generated and shown to be infectious in taro following agro-inoculation. This is the first report of TaBV from Australia and also the first report of an infectious clone for this virus.
