A homologous promoter was optimized to drive heterologous eGFP overexpression specifically in the conidia of Beauveria bassiana. Extraordinarily high expression of Vip3A toxin was achieved in transgenic conidia under the promoter control. The transgenic conidia, upon ingestion, killed all instars of foliage-devouring caterpillars at economic spray rates.
