First report of Sweet potato leaf curl virus infecting sweet potato in Argentina

This is a report of the complete nucleotide sequence of a begomovirus infecting sweet potato in the Northeastern region of Argentina. Sequence comparisons indicated that the isolate under study has the highest nucleotide sequence identity (93.6 %) with Sweet potato leaf curl virus Puerto Rico. According to the current taxonomic criteria for begomovirus classification the Argentinean isolate would correspond to a new strain of Sweet potato leaf curl virus.
