Silkworm Database (Genetic Resources)

Contact: NAKAMOTO Yasutoshi
Resource classification: Bio resource (DNA, Cell culture, Protein, Bacteria, Virus, etc)
Biological research on silkworm as an agricultural
insect is development and a lot of results are
stored and, along with that, the insect becomes to
be highly evaluated as an experiment material not
only in the agricultural field but also in the
field of basic biology.
In this field, not only a character directly
relating to cocoon production but also various
other characters are elucidated, and the results
obtained by the basic research is fed back to the
breeding research field to contribute to breeding
improvement greatly.
The materials relating to genetic resources of
a silkworm stored in NIAS are opened in the
