BBC– This is an exciticing new tactic in the war on malaria. These researchers have found a gene which makes mosquitos resistant to the malaria protists, and are figuring out ways to introduce it into a mosquito population. Think of the good that could do! No more hiding inside mosquito nets, no more tons of poisonous (and expensive) insecticides… no more malaria. There was a similar story I posted a while ago about researchers finding a fungus they could innoculate mosquitos with, which killed the malaria. You get a couple strategies like this going at the same time, and maybe this whole thing works.
