Neutering Insect-borne Pestilences using CRISPR
Insects, from time immemorial, have been a boon and bane for humanity. While some insects are needed for pollination, many insects have spread diseases in humans, plants and animals. By using CRISPR gene editing technique to alter insect genes and using the insects’ natural desire to propagate, dangerous insect populations can be controlled.
