Slow and steady wins the race: spatial and stochastic processes and the failure of suppression gene drivesJ. F. Paril and B. L. Phillips, Molecular Ecology, 2022.
Gene drives that skew sex ratios offer a new management tool to suppress or eradicate pest populations. Early models and empirical work suggest that these suppression drives can completely eradicate well-mixed populations, but models that incorporate stochasticity and space ...
