#Flash: Recent Advances: Superpower to become invisible to M
Scientists have taken the first step toward creating a mosquito that is blind to human hosts using Crispr. Crispr is a gene-editing tool or in simpler words “mosquito control tool” that makes humans effectively invisible in the eyes of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which hunt using dark visual cues. The better we understand how mosquitoes detect humans, the better we will be able to control mosquitoes in an environmentally friendly manner. This will help protect humans against diseases like dengue fever, yellow fever, and Zika.
