Microinjection of the Sand Fly Lutzomyia longipalpis, a Vector for Leishmaniasis

Two recent papers, Jefferies et al (2018) and Martin-Martin et. al (2018), describe experiments to develop and optimise a sand fly microinjection protocol. There are 2 authors to this post: Alla Madich, Simon Collier, technical constraints on this website allow […]

ReMOT control delivery technology holds promise for CRISPR-Cas9 activity independent of embryonic injection

A new report in Nature Communications by Chaverra-Rodriguez et al. details a novel Cas9-delivery approach for insect genetic modification. In their work, Chaverra-Rodriguez et al introduce a technology they term “ReMOT control”, or Receptor-Mediated Ovary Transduction of Cargo. In their […]
