Summary

This animation covers research on vegetable crops suffer from new diseases caused by emergent viruses and how a team of researchers recently found evidence of viral evolution including genomic recombination between different species, enabling the newly recombinant virus to invade successfully new regions and crops species and outcompete a native virus. This is aimed at a general audience.
