Reversal of pest resistance to transgenic cotton

Researchers report an 11-year study demonstrating reversal of resistance of the global pest pink bollworm to transgenic cotton, which produces an insecticidal protein from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt); resistance was reversed by planting second-generation seeds from crosses between transgenic and conventional cotton that yielded one-quarter non-Bt plants and appeared to boost survival of susceptible insects. - Read at PNAS
