Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Ruiyin Chu, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book describes the current advances and remaining obstacles associated with the commercial development of baculovirus expression systems as well as the production of viral pesticides.
Purpose: The topics are diverse yet interrelated and focus on the transcriptional, translational, and post-translational regulatory factors governing foreign gene expression and virus replication. It aims to provide a multidimensiunal view on the interplay between viral, cellular, and extracellular factors. It is an essential book for professionals and students.
Audience: This book is primarily targeted toward students and postdoctorate fellows to aid them with a complete, thorough understanding of the baculovirus expression system and the use of baculovirus as a biopesticide.
Features: Tables, graphs, charts, and pictures are illustrated appropriately. References span a wide range and include the most current ones as well. The contents and index are adequate. The overall appearance of the book is simple but sufficient.
Assessment: It is a very useful reference textbook for students, postdoctorate fellows, and principal investigators of laboratories. Some of the information is novel and is compiled together rather ingeniously.
