The key to China's domination of silk production and promotion lies with one species: the blind, flightless moth, Bombyx
Among the topics are silkworm genetics and genomics, the rise and fall of the W chromosome, the sex chromosome and sex determination in Bombyx
mori, molecular and physiological innovations of butterfly eyes, circadian clocks, lepidopteran chemoreceptors, genetics and molecular biology of the major crop pest genus Helicoverpa, innate immune responses of Manduca sexta, lepidopterans as model mini-hosts for human pathogens and as a resource for peptide antibiotics, and the interactions between polydnavirus-carrying parasitoids and their lepidopteran hosts.
The rearing of 100 layings of crossbreed silkworm, Bombyx
mori during 4th and 5th instars produce litter equivalent to dung produced by two or three cows per day.
Through selective breeding of moths with the desired traits, they developed a domestic species of silk moth (Bombyx
mori) whose caterpillars produce smoother, finer filaments.
