Generation of autofluorescent baculoviruses

NeoVirTech announces the generation of autofluorescent baculoviruses and the corresponding patent protection. Following collaboration with Dr Miguel Lopez-Ferber from the IMT Mines Alès, NeoVirTech has validated autofluorescent ANCHOR tagging of an insect virus for imaging and screening applications. Several autofluorescent baculoviruses have been generated allowing live cell tracking of virus genomes dynamics and replication, from single cells to organism. This achievement provides a new rapid and efficient tool to investigate bacculovirus biology, these viruses being used as gene transfer vectors, biopesticide or biomimetic of extremely dangerous pathogens.
