In-Vitro Production of Baculovirus Biopesticides - A Systems Biology Approach (2009–2012)

Abstract:
The use of baculoviruses to help control the worlds major insect pests is sought due to their rising resistance to chemical control. Production of baculoviruses using bioreactor based technology is desired but is limited by the cost of production and the need for multiple virus products due to the specificity of the activity of each individual virus.
