genetic abnormalities

Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type) L.)
Descriptor: Damage
Description: Genetic abnormalities are not economically important but may be confused with infectious diseases or chemical injuries. The most common abnormalities are called chimeras, which are plants composed of two or more genetically different tissues caused by mutation in vegetative cells. They usually occur as pie-shaped sectors of leaves, stalks or flowers and appear on leaves as ruffled texture or irregular patches of yellow-green or white. Veins usually mark the boundaries of variegated leaf tissue.
