Disrupting female flight in the vector Aedes aegypti

bioRxiv

Dec 2, 2019

Sarah O'Leary, Zach Adelman

Abstract

Aedes aegypti is a vector of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika viruses. Current vector control strategies such as community engagement, source reduction, and insecticides have not been sufficient to prevent viral outbreaks. Thus, interest in novel strategies involving genetic engineering is...read more
