Insect Feeding Facility

 

We have an insect feeding and bioassay laboratory, which established the facilities and technique of artificial feeding diamond back moth, Helicoverpa armigera, Spodoptera litura, rice stem borer and other insects. The major responsibilities of the facility would provide the right instars larva for testing the Bt toxin and evaluating resistance of transgenic Bt plants to target insects. Meanwhile, we also do efforts for exploring the artificial diets of different insects, artificial feeding conditions of target insects and tolerance to target Bt toxin. And the insect feeding and bioassay laboratory is an important part of Haide GM Crop Testing Facilities. It provides with Bt insecticidal activity bioassay of transgenic rice such as rice-stem borer ect..
