    ..This is concerning because it suggests that any BFDV variants that might emerge in captive European birds could directly threaten wild psittacine populations...

    Virol J 6:104. 2009
    ..The credibility of this hypothesis, therefore, hinges on the testable claim that negative selection during mastrevirus evolution is so potent that it effectively purges 99.999% of all mutations that occur...

    Gordon W Harkins
    South African National Bioinformatics Institute, University of the Western Cape, Private Bag X17, Bellville 7535, South Africa
    J Gen Virol 90:3066-74. 2009
    ..This suggests a causal link between MSV recombination and the emergence of MSV-A as a serious pathogen of maize...

    J Virol 85:9623-36. 2011
    ..Collectively, our results suggest that regular analysis of MSV-A genomes within these diversification hot spots could be used to monitor the emergence of future MSV-A lineages that could affect maize cultivation in Africa...
