Cover for Conditional dominant lethals - RIDL.

This chapter focuses on sterile insect technique (SIT) improvement through the use of conditional dominant lethal genes, which can be used for sterilization and/or sex separation. When these conditional lethal genes are transgenes, i.e. constructed using recombinant DNA methods with at least some...

Cover for Antipathogen effector molecules: current and future strategies.

The idea of replacing natural insect vector populations with genetically engineered ones that are incapable of transmitting important disease pathogens was first envisioned nearly 25 years ago by Curtis and Graves. For such an approach to be successful 3 key technologies are needed: (i) methods for ...

Cover for Paratransgenesis in mosquitoes and other insects: microbial ecology and bacterial genetic considerations.

In principle, it should be possible to modify the vector phenotype to prevent disease transmission in 2 ways: by modifying the genotype through transgenesis (i.e. adding or removing genes in the genome) or by modifying some aspect of the vector's internal environment. For vector insects, the...
