Department of Biological Chemistry, John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK.


Particles of cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV) have enjoyed considerable success as a means of presenting peptides for vaccine purposes. However, the existing technology has limitations in regard to the size and nature of the peptides which can be presented and has problems regarding bio-containment. Recent developments suggest ways by which these problems can be overcome, increasing the range of potential applications of CPMV-based particle technology.
