Plant viruses are viruses affecting plants.
While this article does not intend to list all plant viruses, it discusses some
important viruses as well as their uses in plant molecular biology.
Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) and Cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) are frequently used
in plant molecular biology. Of special interest is the CaMV 35S promoter, which
is a very strong promoter most frequently used in plant transformations.
