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.

Marker-trait association studies in tomato have
progressed rapidly due to the availability of several populations
developed between wild species and domesticated
tomato. However, in the absence of whole genome

Recent trends in soil microbiology suggest that certain soil microbes have a positive effect on seedling
growth and development. A study was conducted to investigate the interactive effect of the plantgrowth
