Transcript of "The malaria proof mosquito and mosquito laser"

  1. 1. The malaria-proof mosquito and mosquito laser
  2. 2. The malaria-proof mosquito <ul><li>Scientists at the University of Arizona have genetically engineered a mosquito that is immune to the Plasmodium parasite, the malaria-causing agent wicht transmits it with its bite. </li></ul><ul><li>The next step is to make the new mosquito hardier than ordinary kind, then to release it into the wild (perhaps within 10 years), where it will displace the deadly variety. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The mosquito laser <ul><li>Former Microsoft executive Nathan Myhrvold, working with the Intellectual Ventures Labority, is developing a laser that can zap mosquitoes without harming other insects or humans. </li></ul><ul><li>The laser targets the mosquitoes size anda signature wing beat and sends the bugs down in a burst of flame , making their deaths good for public health. </li></ul>
