New genetic study of mosquitoes demonstrates movement of insecticide resistance across Africa

Press/Media: ResearchAcademic

Description

The largest ever genetic study of mosquitoes reveals the movement of insecticide resistance between different regions of Africa and finds several rapidly evolving insecticide resistance genes. Reported today (29 November) in Nature, this genetic resource will be used to develop new tools for monitoring resistance and managing insecticide use, and for designing novel control methods.

    DescriptionUne étude révèle que les moustiques, qui transmettent le paludisme, deviennent de plus en plus résistants aux insecticides. Cela pourrait pénaliser le contrôle du paludisme en Afrique. De plus, la résistance concerne également de nouvelles techniques comme le Gene Drive montrant que même les outils de pointe seront rapidement dépassés.
