Self-destructing mosquitoes and sterilized rodents: the promise of gene drives
Malaria, Anopheles gambiae, Anopheles arabiensis, Vector control, Machine learning, Mid-infrared spectroscopy. Amendments from Version 2 This third version includes the following amendments: We have corrected the typos that have appeared in the text. We have clarified how we have modelled the populations. We have changed Figure 8 to include wavelength units as well.
The aim was to bring together mosquito control professionals from across the continent, and provide a platform to build capacity and coordinate efforts to improve mosquito control and prevent diseases like malaria. A few years later, in , we began work at the Sanger Institute on a new project to sequence the genomes of more than 1, malaria mosquitoes collected from across Africa. Thanks to new funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, these efforts are now coming together, and PAMCA has recently invited researchers to propose new projects on mosquito genomics in Africa.
Our mosquito team at the Sanger institute is excited to be supporting those projects, and will sequence the whole genomes of thousands of new mosquitoes collected from locations where we currently have little or no data. Mosquito-borne diseases, particularly malaria, still have a devastating impact on public health in Africa, and massive efforts are made each year to control mosquitoes. For example, in the Global Fund paid for million insecticide-treated bednets to be distributed in Africa.

I also organised these events in Southern Spain for a couple of years. I left to have my family and then many years later I set up my fun casino business and it has gone from strength to strength. I only employ professional friendly croupiers who will make your event, fun, entertaining, an evening to remember.
The event runs for 3 hours and we arrive approximately 1 hour before the allotted time to set up the tables. All of your guests will be given fun money to exchange at the gaming tables for casino chips and they will then play the tables just like in a real casino.

Building capacity for genomic surveillance of malaria mosquitoes in Africa
William Watson 6 November — 5 August was a Liverpool-born racing driver and motoring pioneer. He also raced in Berliet , Vauxhall and Essex cars. William Watson was born in , the youngest child of Timothy Watson, a milk dealer in the West Derby area of Liverpool. He won a scholarship to Liverpool College , then became a Solicitor’s Clerk, but abandoned the legal profession for cycle racing and manufacture. He was an active member of the Liverpool Wheelers Cycling Club.

New research from LSTM has revealed precisely how insecticide-treated bed nets are so effective against malaria mosquitoes. However, as very little is known about how mosquitoes interact with nets or how LLINs do their job so effectively, how they might be modified or improved is not clear. With malaria mosquitoes rapidly becoming resistant to the pyrethroid insecticides used on LLINs, their future is under threat and the need to understand the mode of action has never been more important.
This system allowed the scientists to measure, define and characterise in fine detail, the behavioural events and sequences of the main African malaria vector, Anopheles gambiae , as it interacts with the net. Dr Philip McCall, senior author on the paper, said: “Essentially, the results demonstrated that an LLIN functions as a highly efficient, fast-acting, human-baited insecticidal trap.
LLINs do not repel mosquitoes — they deliver insecticide very rapidly after the briefest contact: LLIN contact of less than 1 minute per mosquito during the first ten minutes can reduce mosquito activity such that after thirty minutes, virtually no mosquitoes are still flying. Surprisingly, mosquitoes were able to detect nets of any kind while still in flight, allowing them to decelerate before they ‘collided’ with the net surface.
The use of this innovative approach to mosquito behaviour has provided unprecedented insight into the mode of action of our most important tool for preventing malaria transmission, under conditions that are as close to natural as possible. The findings potentially could influence many aspects of mosquito control, ranging from how we test mosquito populations for insecticide resistance to the design of a next generation of LLINs. An MRC Confidence in Concept grant has funded the team to use the tracking system to explore a number of novel LLIN designs, already patented as an outcome from the current research.
The tracking system also has been deployed in a rural Tanzania, results of which will be reported shortly. Dr McCall continued: “preliminary results in field tests indicate that these laboratory findings are consistent with behaviour of wild mosquito populations which is very encouraging. We are at the early stages of this research, but we hope that our findings, and the use of this cutting edge technology, can contribute to the development of new and advanced vector control tools that will continue to save lives in endemic countries throughout the world.

Metrics details. Insecticide-treated nets ITNs are losing efficacy against pyrethroid-resistant malaria vector populations throughout Africa. Safeguarding bed net efficacy, vital for effective malaria control, requires greater knowledge of mosquito—ITN interactions and how this impacts on the mosquito. Time and duration of defined behavioural events, and knockdown and mortality at 1- and h post-exposure respectively, were recorded for pyrethroid susceptible and resistant mosquitoes.
Using three human volunteers differing in relative attractiveness to mosquitoes, mosquitoes were individually tested. The sequence of behavioural events from host-seeking to completion of blood-feeding was consistent in all tests but duration and start time of events involving net contact were reduced or delayed respectively with ITNs.
This wavelength falls within the ‘mosquito-blind’ near-IR region . from colonies at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).
Following a highly competitive two-stage review process, we selected 9 projects which are aligned to the key themes of the Network, relating to vector-pathogen interactions, novel symbionts and transmission blocking, gene drive systems, mosquito behaviour, as well as social sciences and stakeholder engagement to deliver information about genetic control measures. We received 34 expressions of interest at the first stage and the overall quality of the proposals received was very high.
The purpose of these awards is to support training opportunities and exchanges for the transfer of knowledge and skills in genetic and symbiont vector control strategies and related fields. The exchanges will be valuable in terms of increasing interaction between members’ groups, ensuring complex techniques are widely disseminated, and help increase research capacity by giving researchers a broader outlook and range of skills and experience.
The activities supported under this scheme could include laboratory exchanges between member groups, work shadowing, attendance at courses or workshops. This includes:. Applicants must apply to become a network member if not already one.
