    • Concerning RNA-guided gene drives for the alteration of wild populations 

      Esvelt, Kevin M; Smidler, Andrea L; Catteruccia, Flaminia; Church, George M (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2014)
      Gene drives may be capable of addressing ecological problems by altering entire populations of wild organisms, but their use has remained largely theoretical due to technical constraints. Here we consider the potential for ...
    • Engineering the control of mosquito-borne infectious diseases 

      Gabrieli, Paolo; Smidler, Andrea; Catteruccia, Flaminia (BioMed Central, 2014)
      Recent advances in genetic engineering are bringing new promise for controlling mosquito populations that transmit deadly pathogens. Here we discuss past and current efforts to engineer mosquito strains that are refractory ...
