English term or phrase: leaf roll viruses and beetles
The context is genetically engineered food. The sentence is: "Researchers created a GE brand of potatoes resistant to leaf roll viruses and beetles." Would you know these terms in Portuguese, or could you recommend a glossary of biotech terms? Thank you!

Portuguese translation:leaf roll virus (virus do enrolamento das folhas da batata)
Explanation:
I would suggest the use of the virus name in English followed by the "name" in Portuguese, as I could only find the name in English in Portuguese references (as in BRIOSO, PST; SOUZA DIAS, JAC; COSTA, AS & OLIVEIRA, DE. 1995. Detecção, através do teste de "Polymerase Chain Reaction" (PCR), de isolado do "Potato Leaf Roll Virus (PLRV) em afídeo - vetor. Summa phytologica 21. - http://acd.ufrj.br/pggen/rl95pt4.htm) In another site, I found the name "crespeira" for the disease caused by this virus. As for beetles, I think they must be simply "besouros".

Explanation:
leaf -roll is defined as " as a virus that causes rolling or curling of leafs." So the protuguese translation could very well convey the meaning. As for beetle you can easily find its meaning in any penglish portuguese dictionary.
