Entomologist examining the rootstock of a corn plant that has been artificially infested with western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera). The non-transgenic root on the right shows considerable damage from the pests, but the transgenic root on the left has very little damage as it has resistance to the rootworm.
