In the future, Dr. Taylor will collaborate with Dr. Megan Fritz to identify possible genes associated with Bt crystal toxin resistance in Helicoverpa zea, the corn earworm. Corn earworms have been reported to have developed Bt resistance in recent years. Dr. Taylor is going to identify additional resistance-associated genomic regions using RAD sequencing to then identify possible genes that contribute to this Bt resistance in corn earworms.
