Isolation of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) from Soil sample

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is an ubiquitous, Gram-positive and sporulating bacterium that synthesizes insecticidal proteins with specificity against a wide range of insects during sporulation (Cry and Cyt) and vegetative growth (Vip and Sip). These proteins have portrayed Bt as an environment-friendly alternative to chemical insecticides. Principle of Isolation of Bacillus thuringiensis Widely used methodologies to isolate Bt from soil consist of a thermal shock …
