Bt Research (ISSN 1925-1939) is an open access, peer reviewed journal published online by BioPublisher. The Journal is publishing high quality original research on all aspects of Bacillus thuringiensis and their toxins affecting the living organisms, as well as environmental risk and public policy relevant to Bt modified organisms. Topics include (but are not limited to) Bt strain identification, novel Bt toxin discovery and bioassay, transgenic Bt plants, insecticidal mechanism of Bt toxin as well as resistant mechanisms of target-insect to Bt toxin.
Bt Research is particularly keen to publish the original research and review article from authors in countries where the Bt modified crops are widely used in commerce in order to provide a forum for advocator, protestor and middle-of-the-roader.
The papers published in the journal are expected to be of interests to Bt researchers, biologists, and teachers/students engaged in biology, as well as are appropriate for R & D personnel and general readers interested in Bt toxins and their application.
Bt Research (ISSN 1925-1939) is archived in Library and Archive Canada and deposited in CrossRef. The Journal has been indexed by ProQuest as well.
