Aedes aegypti, vector of Dengue virus

Cre/lox-Recombinase-Mediated Cassette Exchange in Aedes aegypti

Häcker et al 2017 reports the use of Cre/lox Recombination-Mediated Cassette Exchange (RMCE) in Aedes aegypti providing a pathway for interrogating specific genomic locations for the use of transgenic constructs in future genetic control methods. Häcker et al 2017 first generated […]

Bombyx mori with eggs

A Stable, Replaceable, Highly Efficient Transgene Expression System

Long et. al. in Scientific Reports describe a system for creating stable sites in the genome of Bombyx mori that allow for site-specific recombination-mediated integration of transgenes. Transposons are essential platforms for many insect genetic technologies and are typically used […]
