Beneficial worms’ genome sequenced

Beneficial worms’ genome sequenced
To improve the efficacy of the worms to prevent the insect damage of important crops, scientists have recently sequenced the genome. The five nematodes (that are insect pathogenic) studied by the scientists were successfully sequenced for the gene families that seem to be involved in the parasitism of insects. Though, nematodes act as biocontrol agents, their efficacy was less in agricultural field; hence, this discovery might improve it.
