The baculoviruses, are a family of large rod-shaped viruses, divided into two genera: nucleopolyhedroviruses (NPV) and granuloviruses (GV). Baculoviruses have species-specific tropisms among the invertebrates with over 600 host species having been described. Moth larval is the most common hosts but sawflies, mosquitoes, and shrimp are also known hosts. The viruses are not known to replicate in mammalian or other vertebrate animal cells. In the early sixteenth century the first records of...
