Novel Bacillus thuringiensis genes encoding toxins which are active
against lepidopteran insects have been cloned from novel
lepidopteran-active B. thuringiensis microbes. The DNA encoding the B.
thuringiensis toxins can be used transform various prokaryotic and
eukaryotic microbes to express the B. thuringiensis toxins. These
recombinant microbes can be used to control lepidopteran insects in
