Biocontrol via mycoviruses: a neglected option for bioprotection?

Code: 9781801461481
Anne D. van Diepeningen, BU Biointeractions and Plant Health, Wageningen University and Research, The Netherlands

Chapter synopsis: Virocontrol involves biocontrol of pathogens via hypovirulence-causing mycoviruses. This chapter discusses the characteristics of mycoviruses and the conditions that need to be met to make a successful virocontrol agent. The chapter describes one of the success stories so far, that of virocontrol of Cryphonectria parasitica, the chestnut blight pathogen. The chapter ends by reviewing future trends and where to find more information on mycoviruses and virocontrol.
