In 1999, banana streak disease outbreaks occurred at two locations in Australia in new banana hybrids that were being screened for fusarium wilt resistance. Two different badnaviruses, banana streak GF virus and a newly discovered virus called banana streak IM virus (BSIMV), were detected in these plants. The complete nucleotide sequence of the BSIMV genome was determined and comprised 7768 nt. Three open reading frames were detected, the first beginning with a non-conventional start codon (CUG). A 55-nt repetition in the putative pregenomic RNA promoter was also identified. Phylogenetic analysis suggests that BSIMV is most closely related to banana streak VN virus.
