The complete genomic sequence of cardamine chlorotic fleck carmovirus (CCFV) has been determined. The genome is a positive-sense ssRNA molecule 4041 nucleotides in length, and has 47 to 64% sequence identity with turnip crinkle, carnation mottle and melon necrotic spot carmoviruses. CCFV and these other carmoviruses have four similar open reading frames (ORFs), and CCFV has large regions of amino acid identity in all of these ORFs with a European isolate of turnip crinkle virus. CCFV, which replicates well in , has only been found so far in Australia in the wild perennial brassica .
