Wolbachia-mosquito interactions and engineered female-specific lethality for Aedes-arbovirus control

Abstract:

Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus are the primary vectors of dengue (DENV) and chikungunya (CHIKV) viruses, causing millions of infections annually. Novel genetic mosquito control methods are being trialled, including population replacement using disease refractory mosquitoes transinfected with the intracellular bacterial endosymbiont Wolbachia, and population suppression by release of male mosquitoes carrying self-limiting genes.

The underlying caus...
