PCR and bioassays screening of Bacillus thuringiensis isolates from rice-fields of Rio Grande do Sul, specific to lepidopterans and coleopterans PCR e bioensaios para triagem de isolados de Bacillus thuringiensis, proveninentes de áreas orizícolas do Rio Grande do Sul, específicos para lepidópteros e coleópteros

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) isolates from soil samples of rice-fields in Rio Grande do Sul (RS) were tested through PCR, aiming at the screening of six groups of Bt cry genes, which codify active proteins for coleopterans and lepidopterans rice pests, and their bioinsecticide potential regarding the...
