Modeling the mutation and reversal of engineered underdominance gene drivesEdgington, MPA, Luke S., Journal of Theoretical Biology, 479:14-21. 2019.
A range of gene drive systems have been proposed that are predicted to increase their frequency and that of associated desirable genetic material even if they confer a fitness cost on individuals carrying them. Engineered underdominance (UD) is such a system and, in one version, ...
