Synthetic Selfish DNA as Genetic Technologies

  Selfish genes are genes that can spread themselves rapidly within genomes and populations.   Think – transposable elements, B chromosomes, homing endonucleases, selfish sex chromosomes, genomic exclusion to name a few. Some are promising candidates for the genetic engineering […]

Insect Genetic Technologies for Mosquito Control

Applying Insect Genetic Technologies to Mosquito Control

The development and use of genetic technologies in a few mosquito species that are major vectors of human pathogens has been on factor in driving or, more appropriately, reviving interest in using genetics-based strategies to control these insects. Transgenic technologies […]
