About Bombyx mori

The silkworm, Bombyx mori, has been used for silk production for over 5,000 years, and continues to be an economically important species. B. mori is a fully domesticated insect, and due to its ease of culture, the silkworm has become a model organism in the study of lepidopteran and arthropod biology [1,2].
