Vector Control Experts Share Guidelines for Gene Drive Mosquito StudiesFebruary 23, 2022
Scientists from QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of California, Berkeley, provided some lessons from vector control field trials and invasive species that could be helpful in monitoring gene drive mosquito projects. Their perspective article is published in Frontiers in Genetics.
As gene drive research advances, it is vital to evaluate monitoring needs to ensure the future introduction of gene drive organisms in the environment can be done effectively and safely. The paper compiles lessons learned from vector-control field trials and invasive species management programs which could be applied to monitoring gene drive mosquito projects as they progress through the phases of pre-release, release, and post-release.
