Physiological characteristics of insects can influence their susceptibility to fungal infection of which age and nutritional status are among the most important.
Evolutionary innovations can be driven by spatial and temporal changes in gene expression. Several such differences have been documented in the embryos of lower and higher Diptera.
The malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto is mainly guided by human odour components to find its blood host.
The antimalarial drug nitroquine is not only an effective antimalarial drug, it is also able to induce the melanization of Plasmodium species.
To optimize malaria control, WHO has prioritised the need for new indicators to evaluate the efficacy of malaria vector control strategies.
An adaptive response to the presence of multiple insecticide classes necessarily involves the development of multiple resistance mechanisms whose effectiveness may be enhanced by intra-population variation in the expression of resistance phenotypes.
We developed a pipeline that makes de novo transcriptome sequencing possible in virtually any organism at a very reasonable cost ($6,300 in sequencing costs in our case).
The encouraging results obtained on the insecticide paint Inesfly 5A IGRTM in terms of mortality, be it in direct contact or at a distance, and its new operational approach could constitute an additional option in malaria control efforts in areas of pyrethroid resistance.
High mortality rates were observed against laboratory strains of the pest mosquito Cx. quinquefasciatus susceptible and resistant to insecticides.
Malaria transmission exists in both town, but with high difference in the level of risk.
