Faba bean necrotic stunt virus

Faba bean necrotic stunt virus (FBNSV) is a plant pathogenic virus of the family Nanoviridae. Its infection cycle is remarkable because it has eight segments, each carried in a different particle, that can replicate independently in different host cells and then reassemble outside of the host cells into new complete virions.[1]
