This book is the reflection of a workshop, held in June Experts on mosquito ecology met for the first time to discuss the current knowledge of mosquito ecology with respect to GM-insect technology.

Emphasis of the workshop was on evaluating how human health and natural ecosystems, includingBrand: Springer Netherlands. The release of genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes may offer an alternative strategy to do so while circumventing the pitfalls of current vector control methods.

Current methodologies are stalling because of drug resistance, absence of vaccines and inadequate mosquito control techniques. Volume 2 Ecological Aspects for Application of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes. New interventions are needed to reduce the burden of vector-borne diseases like malaria and dengué, which are among the most serious and prevalent infectious diseases worldwide.

Ecological Aspects for Application of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes is the reflection of a workshop, held in Junethat addressed these issues. Experts on mosquito ecology met for the first time to discuss the current knowledge of mosquito ecology with respect to GM-insect technology.

A collection of papers dealing with different aspects of genetically modified mosquitoes is given in Takken and Scott [34], from genetic control of mosquito-borne diseases, mosquito ecology.

Ecological aspects for application of genetically modified mosquitoes. By W. Takken, T.W. Scott and R.J. Rogers. Abstract. The idea of using genetically modified mosquitoes (GMM) to reduce vector-borne diseases is founded on the notion that genetic constructs that will render mosquitoes incapable of pathogen transmission can be driven into Author: W.

Takken, T.W. Scott and R.J. Rogers. Contemporary developments in the field of modern biotechnology, and in particular GM, requires competencies beyond the field of biology, and the future of transgenic mosquitoes will hinge on the ability to govern the process of their introduction in societies in which perceived risks may outweigh rational and responsible involvement.

Knols and T.W. Scott. Also included is a review of recommendations for containment of arthropods that are infected with pathogens, that are uninfected, and that are genetically modified.

An important motivation for the most recent containment guidelines was the explosion of research involving genetically modified vectors (Higgs ). Genetic modification Cited by: the drainage canals and associated wetlands have become breeding sites for mosquitoes; as a result malaria outbreaks are occurring in the project area.

Scientists demonstrate that a "gene drive" can rapidly spread a genetic mutation through a species, perhaps providing a potent new weapon against malaria. But there are plenty of skeptics.The most advanced applied research on genetically modified (GM) insects is being undertaken with the aim to control insect vectors of human diseases such as mosquitoes in the spread of malaria and dengue, and to control populations of crop pests, including the diamondback moth, olive fruit fly, and Mediterranean fruit fly.
