Analysis of transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) data revealed a complete Cowpea aphid-borne mosaic virus (CABMV) genome from virus-infected passion fruit in Kenya. We compared it with six complete CABMV genomes, one each from Zimbabwe and Uganda and two each from Brazil and India. The Zimbabwean isolate CABMV-Z was the closest, with 83.0% nucleotide identity.
