Modified mosquitos

Scientists from the Imperial College in London have developed a new way of combatting malaria– altering mosquito sperm to only produce male offspring. Still a serious killer in many parts of Africa and Asia, malaria control has been greatly impacted by insecticide resistant mosquitos, and drug resistant strands of the parasite.

The study, published in Nature Communications, distorts the sex–ratio of the Anopheles gambiae mosquito sperm. The Anopheles gambiae mosquito is the main transmitter of malaria. | Read more about the study on Science Daily
