A tomato-infecting tomato mosaic virus (ToMV) isolate was detected in
Zimbabwe using lateral flow kits and double-antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent
assay. Next-generation sequencing and de novo assembly were subsequently
performed to determine its genome sequence. The ToMV genome of the
Zimbabwe isolate is the second to be reported in Africa.
