Abstract
Cotton is known as a most important cash crop for countries depending on agriculture, thus, it always received importance in research and development sector. Pakistan economy is also dependent on cotton yield and production. Many insect pest and weeds attack on cotton and due to these there will be yield loss. Many methods have been used to manage these losses in which introduction of genetically modified cotton has special place. Bt cotton is developed from bacteria which has natural resistance against some insects and weeds and due to this Bt cotton there is increase of 30% in yield from conventional or desi cotton. A number of methods have been used to improve the yield and manage losses among which gene identification by using different methods is in use. Now a day more work is going on high-through put techniques including NGS, RNAi and VIGS. In addition, these new approaches will also provide an environmentally friendly method of plant genetic engineering and have good effect on economy of country.
