Jyothi Sharma and Priya Iyer

Novel Cry genes are potential candidates for resistance management strategies. Strains of Bacillus thuringiensiswere isolated from various soil and water samples. Strains which were gram positive, endospore forming wereselected for further work. Cry2 gene novel potential candidates were selected for resistance management strategies.Cry2 gene protein was used against cotton pathogen Helicoverpa armigera .
