I have just had a very interesting lecture about the use of Bt toxin in 
the control of insect pests.

A question springs to mind. What is a bacterium like B. thuringiensis 
doing producing an insect specific toxin? How is this an advantage?

Any other bits of intersting info on Bt toxin would be great .
