Comments P.2692 right column 2nd paragraph: "Until now, whole and partial genome sequences of more than 60 Bt [Bacillus thuringiensis] strains (about 30 complete sequences) have been submitted to the GeneBank. The full-length genome (including one to multiple plasmids) of the studied Bt strains spans from 5.3 to 6.87 Mb. The number of genes in the studied Bt strains varies from 5343 to 7227, and the number of plasmids ranges between 1 and 13. The guanine-cytosine content (GC) of the Bt genomes is between 31.4 and 35.48% (Table 1). Accordingly, these reports confirm the vast genetic diversity among the studied strains, and therefore, by exploring new strains, novel toxin genes and proteins most probably will be detected."
