Virology
Plant virus epidemiology and virus-vector interactions.
Molecular biology of emaraviruses.

Berry virus diseases have been understudied and several new virus complexes have emerged in the last decade causing detrimental losses.  One of the goals of our research is to understand the epidemiology of virus complexes and implement cultural and pest management strategies to minimize disease impact. 

We are developing next generation diagnostics based on the virosome of berry crops. Using large scale sequencing and custom-made bioinformatics pipelines we are able to detect all viruses known to infect a crop but even more importantly new viruses that are associated with diseases on unknown etiology.

We have several projects on ornamental viruses, especially those in the genus Emaravirus, negative-strand RNA viruses that replicate in their mite vectors.  We use four emaravirus species in our efforts to understand the virus-vector interactions and the role of virus genes in replication and disease onset.

Soybean, the most important crop for Arkansas, suffers significant losses due to virus infection.  Our efforts focus on Soybean vein necrosis virus and in particular on the epidemiology, identification of resistance and virus gene function in association to the necrosis symptoms often observed in the field.
