Workpackge 1 targets viral diversity in banana, garlic, sugarcane, sweet potato and yam in order to assess current diagnostic tools and methods, and optimize them when necessary.

Several hundreds of leaf samples were collected and are being indexed for known existing viral species. Although results are not completed yet, this work confirmed the presence of several virus species in genetic resources conserved by the participating Biological Resources Centres.

Based on datamining performed on ESTs in WP3, molecular tools for tentative viral species were developed and used. They confirmed the presence of yet unreported viral species in several of the crops targeted by the project.
