Short Course on Insect Genetic Technologies – August 2015

The Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network is offering a short course on insect genetic technologies August 17-21, 2015. Today there are myriad technologies for modifying genomes. Technologies are emerging rapidly and it is a challenge for investigators to keep […]

Anopheles gambiae Transgenesis Tool Box – Major Additions

Volohonsky et. al. (2015) in a just-published paper in G3 entitled  “Tools for Anopheles gambiae transgenesis”  describe a wealth of new tools for creating transgenic An. gambiae. There has been a protocol for Anopheles gambiae transgenesis for over 15 years, […]

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 […]
