Modelling optimal strategies for novel genetics-based pest management

Abstract:

Genetic transformation techniques for pest insects have enabled the development of novel methods to mitigate the enormous harm done by insects to human health (through transmission of diseases) and to agriculture (through damage to crops or livestock). I use mathematical modelling to analyse strategies using autocidal genetic constructs (dominant lethal genes that are repressible during mass-rearing); in parallel several research groups are developing the strains and the laboratory and field ...
