Genetic breakdown of a Tet-off conditional lethality system for insect population control

Y. Zhao, M. F. Schetelig and A. M. Handler,  Nature Communications,  11:3095. 2020.
Genetically modified conditional lethal strains have been created to improve the control of insect pest populations damaging to human health and agriculture. However, understanding the potential for the genetic breakdown of lethality systems by rare spontaneous mutations, or ...
