Genetic approaches to the development of novel designs for population control of two vector mosquitoes: Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus.

Alternative title:
Genetically engineered late-acting lethality as a strategy for control of invasive vector mosquitoes.
Abstract:

The prevention or reduction of infectious pathogen transmission is essential for safeguarding human health and species conservation, and can be achieved through vector control. New genetics-based innovations have proven to be a viable solution for the successful suppression or eradication of insect vectors, whilst also providing opportunities for further improvements and enhancements. In this thesis, I examine a vector control approach incorporating genetically engineered late-acting lethalit...
