Jun, B-O,  Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics,  27:113-116. 2017.

This paper discusses the ethical issues associated with genetic modification of mosquito species that are human disease vectors. The Oxitec genetically changed mosquito—a variant of a species called Aedes aegypti, OX513A, is taken as an example. The benefits and risks are discussed, and questions need to be discussed in public prior to release of this gene drive system
