About this book

Baculovirus Expression Systems and Biopesticides Edited by Michael L. Shuler, H. Alan Wood, Robert R. Granados, and Daniel A. Hammer Baculovirus Expression Systems and Biopesticides provides an integrated perspective on the use of the continually evolving baculovirus-insect cell system in the production of recombinant proteins and genetically engineered pesticides. Divided into three main sections - Developing Effective Virus-Insect Culture Systems, Bioreactor Design and Scale-Up Issues, and Commercial Application of Insect Cell Culture - the book, written by highly regarded editors in the field, describes: * The molecular biology and genetics of baculoviruses* The use of baculoviruses as expression systems* Principles and methods for small- and large-scale insect cultures* The use of wild type and genetically engineered baculoviruses as viral pesticides The breadth of coverage in Baculovirus Expression Systems and Biopesticides will meet the needs of molecular biologists, chemical engineers, biotechnologists,virologists, and entomologists.
