Overview

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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
