About This Project

The Asian Tiger Mosquito transmits human disease viruses, such as Dengue and Chikungunya, and is an invasive species living on all continents except Antarctica. Despite being native to the tropics, this species has invaded temperate regions with extreme cold temperatures. How did they do that? My goal is to identify genes underlying adaptations to cold that can be manipulated to control mosquito populations involved in disease transmission.
