Objetivos, atividades e resultados esperados/atingidos


  • To collate and synthesize existing and developing experimental information on phytoviruses affecting olive trees

  • Establishment of core collection with a large prospection in different geographic locations of Tunisia and Portugal of the spontaneous olive infecting viruses. Different parameters will be taken into account such as climate, geographic conditions and olive varieties

  • Construct and actualize a survey of all olive infecting viruses in the Mediterranean area including Tunisia and Portugal

  • Identification of the olive infecting viruses using molecular approaches using already published assays and optimization of the protocols (isolation of dsRNA and RT-PCR)

  • Study of the variability and newly identified viruses by sequencing of the whole genome or regions such as CP - Study of the possible correlation with the different parameters applied (variety, climate, geography and symptoms if existed)

  • Development of new methodologies for the detection and the quantification of the identified olive infecting viruses using molecular tools such as Quantitative Real-Time PCR
