Pirbright Talk - Re-engineering mosquitoes to fight disease

Description: Ever been bitten by a mosquito and wondered why we can't just get rid of them all? These biting insects are a nuisance for us in the UK, but in other areas of the world they cause devastation through the spread of diseases such as malaria and Zika virus. Pesticides can be used to control their numbers, but this can come at a large cost to the environment and food chain. But not to fear, a potential solution is at hand! In this talk, Professor Luke Alphey shows us how editing the DNA of mosquitoes can help us to control their numbers and reduce the spread of diseases.
