Who invented gene drive?

Category: Gene Drive Description

Gene drive is a genetic phenomenon and is not an “invention”. The term refers to a pattern of inheritance that is found commonly in nature. Mimicking these many examples from nature that have been known for decades, scientists are working in the laboratory to engineer gene drive systems that would introduce genetic traits into certain insects or other animals or plants such that their introduction would impact populations for the benefit of public health, conservation, or agriculture.
