Impact of mating behaviour on the success of malaria control through a single inundative release of transgenic mosquitoes

Journal of Theoretical Biology

Christophe BoëteR G Reeves

Abstract

Transgenic mosquitoes are a potential tool for the control or eradication of insect-vectored diseases. For malaria, one possible strategy relies on the introduction of malaria-refractory transgenes into wild Anopheles mosquito populations that would limit their capacity to transmit the ...read more

Plasmodium Falciparum

Malaria remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the tropics, with the parasite Plasmodium falciparum responsible for the majority of the disease burden. Discover the latest research on Plasmodium falciparum.

Malaria Vaccines

Research for development of a malaria vaccine is currently underway to find an effective modality to control and eliminate the transmission of malaria. To date, no vaccine has been found to be efficacious in fighting against malaria. Here is the latest research on malaria vaccines.

Parasite Genetics

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.

Malaria
