Conventional methodologies to control vector borne diseases with chemical pesticides are often associated with environmental toxicity, adverse effects on human health and the emergence of insect resistance. In the paratransgenic strategy, symbiotic or commensal microbes of host insects are transformed to express gene products that interfere with pathogen(More)
A novel approach for discrete frequency tuning of dielectric resonators based on electromechanical actuators such as the microelectromechanical system is presented. The concept is based on the intermodal coupling between the TE/sub 01/spl delta// mode of a cylindrical dielectric resonator and the radially arranged planar slotline resonators. The resonance(More)
