Invertebrate Cell Culture Applications assesses the status of invertebrate cell culture at a time when this method can be used to solve problems in a number of diverse disciplines. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins by discussing the development and amino acid requirements of insect cell culture. It then describes the Drosophila tissue culture and chromosomal phenomena in cell lines of this organism. This book also explains the culture conditions regulating the infection of cells by an intracellular microorganism, as well as the replication of arboviruses in arthropod in vitro systems. Lastly, the characteristics, growth requirements, and applications of tick cell culture to parasitology are explored. This book will contribute in solving biomedical and agricultural problems. This reference material will be of special interest to parasitologists, virologists, microbiologists, entomologists, geneticists, medical researchers, and graduate students in related fields of biomedical research.
