  1. High copy number (>50 copies) virus-derived small interfering RNAs (vsiRNAs) of small RNA (sRNA) libraries of Potato virus Y (PVY) strains, tobacco veinal-necrotic strain (PVY-N), necrosis tuber-necrotic strain (PVY-NTN) and ordinary strain (PVY-O) in potato cv. Russet Burbank, were used as query to predict their cross reacting potential with potato ncRNA transcripts using psRNATarget algorithm under default settings
