    ..annuum. In addition to increasing our knowledge of host jumps in plant viruses, this study illustrates also the efficiency of locus-by-locus AMOVA and combined approaches to identify adaptive mutations in the genome of RNA viruses. ..

    ..Such narrow bottlenecks emphasize the strength of stochastic events acting on virus populations, and we illustrate, in modeling virus emergence, why estimating this parameter is important. ..

    ..Therefore, this emergence could constitute one of the rare examples of resistance breakdown by a virus which was caused by recombination instead of by successive accumulation of nucleotide substitutions. ..
