Olive latent virus 1 (OLV-1) is a necrovirus belonging to the familyTombusviridae.
It is a small icosahedral plant virus, which encapsidates a single stranded positivesense
RNA. This virus was first isolated from symptomless olive trees in Italy 
and afterwards in Jordan and Portugal [10, 4]. OLV-1 was also isolated from
symptomatic hosts, such as citrus trees in Turkey  and tulips in Japan . Up
to now, only one complete genome sequence of an OLV-1 citrus isolate has been
determined . This report describes the first full genomic sequence of an OLV-1
isolated from olive trees.
