Research on Bt


Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt bacteria) is the most successful biological pesticide bacteria yet, the gene encoding insecticidal toxin has been successfully applied to plant gene, which has become one of the most effective "molecular characters" of the plant. We began to collect soil samples from the tropical rain forest to isolate Bt bacteria, identify and isolate the Bt toxin gene in 2005. The main research direction is mainly focused on the following aspects:

1 Isolation and identification and biological assay of Bt bacteria

2 Cloning and expression of insecticidal toxin gene of Bt bacteria

3 Mosquito killing Bt bacteria bacteria and its gene cloning and Application

4 Study on Bt gene in transgenic plants
