Insect Cell Cultures: Fundamental and Applied Aspectsis a comprehensive reference work, covering the key issues involved in nearly 30 review papers: cell lines (development, characterisation, physiology, cultivation and medium design); viruses (virus-cell interactions, replication, recombinant construction, infection kinetics, post-translational modification and passage effects); engineering (shear, bioreactors including perfusion, immobilisation, scale-up and modelling, downstream processing); applications; economics and regulatory aspects.
For cell biologists, biochemists, molecular biologists, virologists, immunologists and other basic and applied disciplines related to cell culture engineering, both academic and industrial.

Editorial Reviews

`In summary, this book covers a wide range of aspects relating to insect cell culture and the baculovirus expression system. It is an authoritative volume which is clearly and conci8sely written by experts selected from industry and academia and is to be highly recommended.' Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata, 87 (1998) `This is an authoritative reference text written by leading experts in their respective fields of insects cell culture. The book targets a potential audience ranging from students and researchers in academia through to those concerned in industry with biotechnology applications.' SGM Quarterly, August (1997)
