This conference, the first of its kind, was predicated on the emergence of a new field-a blend of insect science, molecular biology, and biochemistry. It was particulary significant that it should be held side-by-side, and with considerable cross-over, with a conference on Molecular Strategies for Crop Protection, a title that also a new hybrid field of considerable excitement and ferment. While many of the participants in Molecular Entomology have emerged from natural products chemistry, insect physiology and endocrinology, genetics, and neurobiology, definete shifts toward the use of molecular Techniques were apparent. the natural products chemists now are moving to proteins and tissues.
