1 FASTA search was performed with a word size of 6, a gap weight penalty of 12, and a gap length penalty of 4. FASTA scores were calculated according to the optimal, final alignment and the default scoring matrix for the comparison of nucleic acid sequences in GCG.

2 The capsid protein of BCTV did not show any homology with either CLCrV or CLCuV when analysed with FASTA program.

(-) indicates that sequences are not available for comparison.
