SC1005: Germline transformation of Anopheles stephensi mosquitos, a vector of human malaria, by using the Minos transposable element from Drosophila hydei marked with an enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) as selectable marker.
The availability of the gene transfer technology developed in Professor Andrea Crisanti laboratory offers a powerful tool to investigate the role of mosquito molecules involved in parasite-host cell interactions and opens a wide range of applications to explore the genome of these important disease vectors. copyright WHO/TDR/Stammers.
