IRRADIATION within the ultraviolet (190.0–380.0 nm) range is an effective means of virus inactivation. We report the effects of short exposures of ultraviolet light at 320.0 nm on Autographa californica (Lepidoptera) nuclear polyhedrosis virus. In this case, ultraviolet light has an activating effect on the virus produced in vitro.
