Vector-borne diseases impose enormous health and economical burdens throughout the world. Unfortunately, as insecticide and drug resistance spread, these burdens will increase unless new control measures are developed. Genetically modifying vectors to be incapable of transmitting parasites is one possible control strategy and much progress has been made towards this goal. Numerous effector molecules have been identified that interfere with parasite development in its insect vectors, and… CONTINUE READING
