Why cotton ?

Or did I miss a chunk somewhere.

Was it a case of "why not ?" or are there specific reasons for choosing cotton over any other plant ?

Either way, this seems another marmite science story. For myself it's fascinating. But there's a lot of people going "what's the point ?". Which (as always) rather misses the point of "science".
