Insect Viruses and Fungal Virology

Currently, molecular studies on replication, assembly, host interactions of insect viruses have contributed enormously to molecular ,cellular ,organismal biology.the ease with which many insect viruses are propagated in cell cultures or live animals, the high yields virus particles or virus encoded macromolecules, and the simplicity with which many insect viruses can be genetically manipulated represent just a few experimental advantages provided by these pathogens.It deals with viruses that infect fungi are known as Mycoviruses.  Mycoviruses have double-stranded RNA genomes and isometric particles, but about 30% of them have positive sense and single-stranded RNA genomes, to be a  true Mycoviruses, they must have an ability to be transmitted ( in other words be able to infect other healthy fungi).
