Genetic variability of the stolbur phytoplasma vmp1 gene in grapevines, bindweeds and vegetables.

S. Murolo, C. Marcone, V. Prota, R. Garau, X. Foissac and G. Romanazzi

Vol. 109, Issue 6, 2049–2059: DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2672.2010.04835.x

In the paper by Murolo et al. (2010), the assignment of 4 vmp1 profiles was found to be incorrect, following subsequent investigations. The figures and tables below display the correct information. The authors apologize for any confusion caused.
