Genetic changes help mosquitoes survive pesticide attacks

Added: 02.01.2018 20:32 | 3 views | 0 comments

The fascinating array of genetic changes that confer pesticide resistance in Anopheles mosquitoes has been reviewed. Findings highlight the interplay between human interventions, mosquito evolution, and disease outcomes, and will help scientists develop new strategies to overcome pesticide resistance.

Isolating blood-feeding and non-biting genes in mosquitoes

Added: 19.12.2017 17:15 | 2 views | 0 comments

Researchers have taken the first step on a path that eventually could result in female mosquitoes that no longer bite and spread diseases. A nine-member team of scientists at five institutions methodically sorted out 902 genes related to blood feeding and 478 genes linked to non-blood feeding from the mosquito Wyeomyia smithii.

Viruses Can Transfer Genes Across Domains of Life, Research Shows

Added: 19.12.2017 10:34 | 3 views | 0 comments

Viruses can transfer genes to organisms they are not known to infect, including organisms in different domains (superkingdoms) of life, according to a study published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology. Viruses can sometimes infect very different organisms during their lifecycle, such as mosquitoes and humans in the case of Zika virus. They can also [...]
