Abstract Viruses are significant threats to agricultural crops worldwide and the limited sources of natural resistance warrant the development of novel resistance sources. Several methods of transgenic protection have been successfully applied, including protein- and RNA-mediated approaches. Increased understanding of the molecular biology of virus infection is starting to bear fruit, enabling specific strategies to be designed for virus resistance in crops.
