The journalist leart on Nov.15 that, National Mulberry improvement center sub-center has built in Nanchong city of sichuan province China which represented that Nanchong opened the door of taking advantage of Molecular biology techniques to choosing and breeding silkworm
Silkworm breeding by molecular biological technology is the frontier science and technology in China. since Long-term, our country silk industry new production on new varieties of silkworm breeding were pure separation, cross breeding methods. This method is still in use today, silkworm genetic variation has been limited, and we want to make a breakthrough which is also very difficult. Therefore, the scientists aim at molecular biology techniques for the breakthrough on development of breeding. A few years ago, the national silkworm improvement center arises at the historic moment.
