SIT 2.0: 21(st) Century genetic technology for the screwworm sterile-insect program.

Abstract:
Release of sterile insects, the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT), can be an extremely effective and precise method of pest control. A study in BMC Biology from the New World screwworm SIT program and others shows that modern genetic methods can provide major improvements even to this well-established and highly successful SIT program. Please see related Research article: A transgenic male-only strain of the New World screwworm for an improved control program using the sterile insect technique, http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/s12915-016-0296-8
