Polydnaviruses are symbiotic viruses of endoparasitic wasps, which are formed in their ovary and injected along with the eggs into the host. They manipulate the host in a way to allow successful parasitoid development. A hallmark of polydnaviruses is their segmented genome consisting of several circles of double-stranded DNA. We are studying the solitary egg-larval parasitoid Chelonus inanitus (Braconidae) parasitizing Spodoptera littoralis (Noctuidae). The polydnavirus of Chelonus inanitus… CONTINUE READING
