Hello, I am looking for opinions of various baculovirus cloning kits 
available, to determine the answers to the following questions:
1. How easy is it for a beginner in insect cell culture to get up and 
running in this system?
2. Which kit gives the highest percentage of recombinant virus?
3. Which kit has the simplest protocol for generation of high titre virus?

I know the Invitrogen BaculoGold system touts itself as producing 99% 
recombinant virus, but is this system suitable for the novice?

Thanks for your opinions,
