Hi Vince, et al, thanks for an update on this old paper on Curvularia thermal tolerance virus. I wanted to let you listeners know that based on this and other work our colleagues Rodriguez and Redman have a Biotech company, Advanced Symbiotic Technologies, that is providing plants that are tolerant of heat, drought, and other environmental problems for agriculture. https://www.adsymtech.com
