Abstract: Tasar culture is an agro forest based industry of the indigenous tribes, who are in dire need of high yielding, season specific and resistant breed (s) of tasar silkworm (Antheraea mylitta Drury) and of food plants (Terminalia spp. ). The biotechnology arsenals operated through genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and transgenesis hold the key to facilitate the bringing up of desired products in tasar culture. The paper portrays about the latest biotechnological tools and their applicability. A comprehensive review on the molecular genetic works attempted so far in tasar silk worm and host plant have been reviewed. followed by adoption of suitable strategies on use of the biotechnological tools so solve the constraints of tasar culture.
Keywords: Biotechnology, tasar culture, markers, tissue culture, Antheraea, Terminalia, Shorea
