Dueling Attackaratus

Invasive PlantBot Specimens

Wendy DesChene + Jeff Schmuki = PlantBot Genetics.


The Attackaratus PlantBot is so fierce and hardy that when PlantBot Geneticists find one, they immediately (at great risks to themselves) try to contain the specimen for study. Attackaratus is a Superbug specimen resistant to the inserted Bacillus thuringiensis or Bt gene in modified crops designed to kill insects. It is inevitable that resistance builds with each insect generation and our first-rate team of etymologists is hopeful the Attackaratus will be contained. Thus far, current pesticides cannot destroy increasing populations of these bugs. Stay tuned to see what we develop next!
