Bacillus thuringiensis is a bacterium that kills insects (mainly in the genera Lepidoptera, Diptera and Coleoptera) and is a major component of the microbial pesticide industry. Researchers are also investigating ways to incorporate the bacterium's insect toxins into the genomes of plants to make insect-resistant crops.
