Why millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released across US

J. Rogers,  New York Post,  2022.

The US could soon be swarming with genetically altered mosquitoes after the Environmental Protection Agency approved a plan to test the insects. It is hoped the new altered mosquitoes will ward off their natural, disease-causing counterparts. Biotechnology company Oxitec has developed altered Aedes aegypti mosquitoes which have been genetically modified so that males, which do not bite, are released into the wild and mate with females, which do bite. Their offspring, either male or female, never survive to reach maturity, according to the company.
