Can genetically modified mosquitoes prevent disease in the US?
'Suicide bombers'

These mosquitoes are created by injecting mosquito eggs in the lab with a killer gene. It produces a protein called tTA, which stops the mosquitoes' cells from turning on other genes which are essential for the bugs to survive.

The resulting GM male mosquitoes are then released into the wild to breed with non-GM females, producing offspring genetically programmed to die well before reproductive age.

You beat me to it, lol. I would feel saver if they just didn't have any offspring at all. Wonder what will happen to the wildlife that eat them, like bats.

Anyway this his how they will cure disease.
