Genetic approaches to controlling pest insects


In this video we are again joined by Dr Derric Nimmo, as well as Dr Tony Nolan as they provide a general overview of the genetic approaches to controlling insects. As our knowledge of genetics of vectors increases, we are learning more about how to exploit genetics to facilitate control. Dr Nimmo and Dr Nolan will cover the history and challenges of these challenges, as well as how to produce a transgenic insect.
