I heard today that the formosanum plant with the twin flower does have a virus. Colin Clay who did the screening wrote:-

"I easily found virus particles belonging to the potyvirus group (as I expected), using electron miocroscopy."

I don't think working along the lines you suggest to produce a plant vaccine is my scene but if you or anyone else would like the plant for further research, please get in touch before it goes to that big plant heaven.
