A very interesting development indeed. One article I read on the topic indicated that some of the worms had offspring which were able to produce the "super silk" which means it might be possible to eventually come up with a strain of silkworms with the gene which breed true.

I am very interested to see how this new material works in practice. It could be a significant step forward for soft-body armor.
