Description

Baculoviruses are perhaps unique among viruses in the breadth of their biotechnological applications: these insect specific viruses are used not only for insect pest management purposes, but also as laboratory research tools for production of recombinant proteins and for protein display, and as potential vectors for human gene therapy. In addition to highlighting recent advances, this volume provides a comprehensive review of the biotechnological applications of these and other insect viruses in both the academic and private sectors.

Readership

Researchers and postgraduates within academia and industry working in virology, entomology, biotechnology, insect pest management and biological control, human gene therapy, vaccinology, plant pathology, drug discovery, and genetics
