Genomic and Morphological Features of a Banchine Polydnavirus: Comparison with Bracoviruses and Ichnoviruses
The unique genomic features of the first banchine virus examined, along with the morphological singularities of its virions, suggest that they could have an origin distinct from those of IVs and BVs.
Shared and species-specific features among ichnovirus genomes.

Analysis reveals previously unrecognized mechanisms by which Ras transformation mediates selective viral oncolysis, and increases the infectious-to-noninfectious virus particle ratio, as virions purified from Ras- transformed cells are fourfold more infectious than those purified from non-transformed cells.
Molecular diagnosis of Kashmir bee virus infection
Molecular protocols were applied to the diagnosis of Kashmir bee virus infection in the honey bee, Apis mellifera, and procedures based on either serology or nucleic acid amplification proved to be very effective, although it was possible in some circumstances to detect viral infection simply by Coomassie blue staining of SDS-PAGE gels.

Complete nucleotide sequence of Kashmir bee virus and comparison with acute bee paralysis virus.
Analysis of the complete nucleotide sequence of a novel virus is presented here together with serological evidence that it belongs to Kashmir bee virus (KBV), andylogenetic analyses show that KBV and ABPV isolates fall into clearly separated clades with moderate evolutionary distance between them.
Co-replication of a reovirus and a polydnavirus in the ichneumonid parasitoid Hyposoter exiguae.
Most, but not all, individuals comprising the H. exiguae colony appeared to be infected with HeRV, suggesting a commensal relationship between wasp and virus; however, while this association is of obvious benefit to the virus, it seems unlikely that any advantage accrues to the parasitoid which carries it.
Virus in a parasitoid wasp: suppression of the cellular immune response in the parasitoid's host.
A virus that replicates in the ovary of a parasitoids wasp is injected into the parasitoid's host during oviposition, which acts to suppress the host's immune response toward the egg.
