GM Mosquitos

Stoked for to hear more about if this is going to be used or not. Some guys have decided that instead of killing the messenger it's time to make him immune to the message. They use RNAi to make genetically modified mosquitos resistant to dengue virus type 2.
Awesome. And I guess they are going to release mass quantities of these into the environment to spread the gene around. Crazy.
