GM mosquitos to prevent tropical diseases

Post by mellang » Fri May 04, 2018 6:38 pm

Hey,
I’m a biotech student working on my seminar thesis which revolves around the topic genetic modification of mosquitos to prevent tropical diseases with various methods (e.g. CRISPR/CAS)

I’m planning to do a survey as part of my and want to know:
- What you think of genetic modification of mosquitos?
Do you think its safe to use?
Would you support the commercial use as a replacement for insecticides?
Or do you think GM mosquitos or GM in general needs more research?
And your knowledge of biotech (e.g. grad student, doctorate, …)

It would be great if you would participate, and tell me what you think about this particular topic. I would really appreciate it!

Please also state if you are a Biotec-Student, Bachelor/Master or how you connect to this topic.


Mel.
