(54)    Title

Corn event MIR 162

(57)    Abstract

A novel transgenic com event designated MIR 162 is disclosed. The invention relates to nucleic acids that are unique to event MIR 162 and to methods for detecting the presence of the MIR 162 event based on DNA sequences of the recombinant constructs inserted into the com genome that resulted in the MIR 162 event and of genomic sequences flanking the insertion site. The invention further relates to corn plants comprising the transgenic genotype of MIR 162 and to methods for producing a corn plant by crossing a corn plant comprising the MIR l62 genotype with itself or another corn variety. Seeds of corn plants comprising the MIR 162 genotype are also objects of the present invention. The invention also relates to methods of controlling insects using MIR 162 corn plants.
