Abstract

The present investigation provides the insight into the evolution of baculoviruses and their hosts and may also aid in the development more effective virus strains for biological control of insects. The improvement of HaNPV-P strain for a successful introduction into biological control for legume pod borer still requires detailed knowledge of the molecular biology of this virus. This study sets the foundation for this and will serve in genetic engineering of the virus to enhance its potential as bio-control agent.
