Cheating evolution: engineering gene drives to manipulate the fate of wild populationsChamper, JB, A.; Akbari, O. S., Nature Reviews Genetics, 17:146-159. 2016.
Engineered gene drives - the process of stimulating the biased inheritance of specific genes - have the potential to enable the spread of desirable genes throughout wild populations or to suppress harmful species, and may be particularly useful for the control of vector-borne ...
