Why are mosquitoes a good target for gene drive technologies?
Category: Vector Borne Disease
Mosquitoes and certain other organisms are potentially good targets for gene drive technologies because they have a short generation time and many offspring, which will allow the gene drive-associated traits to spread quickly enough to yield the desired public health effect within an observable time-frame. The generation time of mosquitoes is only a few weeks.
