First, mosquitoes that can’t fly. Now, mosquitoes that heal.

“Last year, Prof. Anthony James announced that he and his colleagues had genetically altered Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in a fashion that could drastically reduce their populations.

Basically, he genetically modified (GM) females to not have wings.

Now he’s come up with a way to cause the winged pests to develop immunities and pass them along, rather than just pass along pestilence.

Snazzy, huh?

Got to wonder, though, about the eventual outcome of messing around with things from the GM direction. I suppose we’re going to find out.

Here’s the story.

Put on your tin foil hats and check out this story of genetic modification (Lyme disease) gone awry.
