    • Comparative life parameters of transgenic and wild strain of Aedes aegypti in the laboratory. 

      Lee, H L; Joko, H (‎2009-12)‎
      The release of genetically-modified Aedes aegypti males is considered an effective method of suppressing this vector of dengue. One of the prerequisites is the capability to mass produce the genetically-modified mosquito in the laboratory before release. To do so would necessitate the understanding of the lifecycle and parameters of the transformed strain. In this regard, comparative life-history parameters of a wild-type laboratory strain of Ae. aegypti (‎WT)‎ and a genetically transformed Ae. aegypti (‎LA513)‎ were studied in the laboratory. The ...
