The term genetically engineered mosquitoes has come to describe genetically modified mosquitoes that have been engineered to carry genes from other species to survive and spread.
The mosquitoes have been described as “diseases of the future” by some.
The two most widely used types of genetically engineered mosquito are Dicerosa azo and Diceros marina.
However, the two types are not identical.
A Dicerosis mosquito is a mosquito that is bred to carry the gene for a gene that is not present in its mother.
A Marina mosquito is bred with a gene from a mosquito from the genus Dicerus that is present in both the mother and the offspring.
Diceronia marina is an example of an artificial mosquito, which was created by genetic engineering a mosquito found in the Philippines.
Dicierosa mosquitoes are the most common type of genetically modified mosquito, accounting for more than half of all genetically engineered mosquito populations.
A small number of other genetically engineered insect species are also in use, and some are known to be capable of causing serious disease.
The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization says that there are currently about 50 genetically engineered species of mosquitoes in use worldwide.
In addition to mosquitoes, other insect pests have also been genetically engineered.
For example, the genetically modified insect Bt cotton was approved in the United States in 2016.
In Australia, a company that makes genetically modified mustard is also using the chemical to control a number of pests.
A number of mosquitoes are designed to fight parasites and other diseases in livestock, which can result in the introduction of other pests.
For these reasons, the introduction or production of genetically enhanced mosquitoes may not be a good idea.
However it is not clear whether the mosquitoes will be effective at fighting malaria, the most serious mosquito-borne disease, or other diseases.
The first genetically engineered Dicerosaurus marina was tested in the Netherlands in 2007, and is now widely used.
However the mosquito is still considered to be a very small number in the global population.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said that a recent review of the results of its first tests found that the mosquito has shown no harmful effects on human health.
The EFSA has also said that it has “found no evidence of a significant risk of adverse health effects associated with the use of the engineered mosquito.”
However, EFSA is yet to recommend that mosquitoes be used as an alternative method of controlling malaria.
