Biotechnological advances in silkworm improvement: Current trends and future prospectus

ZI Buhroo, Shahina A Nagoo, Iqra Rafiq and MA Bhat

The recent advances in Biotechnology viz., recombinant DNA techniques, genetic engineering through manipulation of desirable traits, stem cell research etc., has revolutionized research in plant and animal sciences. However, the impact of Biotechnology is yet to find a place in Sericulture owing to the fact that many industrially developed countries where Biotechnology is reaping its fruits unfortunately do not practice sericulture, this has resulted in non-attempting of biotechnological approaches in sericulture. Japan, China and India, the largest producers of natural silk in the world, have invariably made few but sincere attempts to introduce biotechnology in sericulture.
