A Synthetic Gene Drive System for Local, Reversible Modification and Suppression of Insect Populations

Replacement of wild insect populations with genetically modified individuals unable to transmit disease provides a self-perpetuating method of disease prevention but requires a gene drive mechanism to spread these traits to high frequency. Drive mechanisms requiring that transgenes exceed a threshold frequency in order to spread are attractive because they… CONTINUE READING
