Silkworms have played an important agricultural role in supporting Japan's modernization, and traditionally, Japan has led the world as a repository of silkworm bioresources. The silkworm is a small and highly domesticated insect, which is ideal as a laboratory tool, although it is a bioresource that is relatively infrequently used in experiments at present. In this review, we describe the potential for silkworm resources to contribute to life sciences.
