First detection of a putative knockdown resistance gene in major mosquito vector, Aedes albopictus.
The Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, is the major vector of Chikungunya fever and the secondary vector of dengue fever, and genotyping assay detects an amino acid substitution, F1534C, which is suspected to confer knockdown resistance to pyrethroid insecticides.
Monitoring of dengue viruses in field-caught Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes by a type-specific polymerase chain reaction and cycle sequencing.

Virologic surveillance by RT-PCR for detecting dengue virus-infected Aedes mosquitoes in the field may serve as an early warning monitoring system for d Dengue outbreaks.
Entomologic and Virologic Investigation of Chikungunya, Singapore
Data from longitudinal analyses can be useful in the design and implementation of control strategies and should be considered in the development of new control strategies.
DNA barcoding: complementing morphological identification of mosquito species in Singapore
Compared the morphological identification of mosquito specimens with their differentiation based on COI barcode, in order to establish a more reliable identification system for mosquito species found in Singapore, the COI-based DNA barcoding achieved a 100% success rate.
First detection of a Vssc allele V1016G conferring a high level of insecticide resistance in Aedes albopictus collected from Europe (Italy) and Asia (Vietnam), 2016: a new emerging threat to
The necessity to frequently and regularly monitor the V1016G allele in Ae.
A novel mosquito feeding system for routine blood-feeding of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus.
It is concluded that this simple collagen based membrane blood feeding system can be used for routine colonization of laboratory strains of Ae.
Evaluation of biological and chemical insecticide mixture against Aedes aegypti larvae and adults by thermal fogging in Singapore
Results demonstrate the practical advantage of using this mixture of Vectobac® 12AS and Actellic® 50 EC for simultaneous control of Aedes adults and larvae, with prolonged larvicidal efficacy in treated containers.
Low efficacy of delthamethrin-treated net against Singapore Aedes aegypti is associated with kdr-type resistance.
The failure of the treated net to render high mortality rate was found to be associated with the knockdown resistance (kdr) mutation, the first report of kdr- mutations in Singapore's Ae.
Entomological investigation and control of a chikungunya cluster in Singapore.
The benefit of a vector control program that includes the evaluation of control measures in conjunction to virological surveillance in vector population is suggested.
The queenslandensis and the type Form of the Dengue Fever Mosquito (Aedes aegypti L.) Are Genomically Indistinguishable
Aedes aegypti queenslandensis are genomically indistinguishable from the type form, which points to these forms freely interbreeding at least in Australia and Singapore, and it is unlikely that the presence of very pale Ae.
