Grapevine Syrah virus-1 (GSyV-1) was identified by small-RNA deep sequencing in Slovak grapevine co-infected by several other viruses. The RT-PCR assays developed in this work substantially improved the virus detection and allowed the identification of GSyV-1 in tested grapevine samples from Slovakia and the Czech Republic at an unexpectedly high rate (ca. 30 %). Subsequently, complete genome sequences of 3 GSyV-1 isolates (2 Slovak and 1 Czech) were determined by Sanger sequencing, showing a typical marafivirus genome organization. Analyses of complete genome sequences showed a higher intra-group diversity among these 3 central European GSyV-1 isolates (differences reaching 7.1 % at the nucleotide level) in comparison to 3 previously characterized North American isolates (only 1.2 % intra-group divergence). A substantially higher divergence among central European isolates and their clustering into two major phylogenetic groups was further confirmed by the partial genome analysis of additional 26 isolates. The CP-centered study did not support the geography-based clustering among central European and American isolates. Nevertheless, the sequence data of the highly variable 5'-proximal portion of the genome obtained for few additional isolates from Slovakia and Czech Republic showed the presence of both, "European-" and "north American-like", GSyV-1 isolates in the analyzed grapevine samples.
