Spatial structure undermines parasite suppression by gene drive cargoBull, JJR, Christopher H.; Gomulkiewicz, Richard; Krone, Stephen M., PeerJ, 7:e7921. 2019.
Gene drives may be used in two ways to curtail vectored diseases. Both involve engineering the drive to spread in the vector population. One approach uses the drive to directly depress vector numbers, possibly to extinction. The other approach leaves intact the vector population ...
