Caption: Dangerous mosquitos, conceptual computer illustration. Mosquitos are vectors of various diseases, helping them to be transmitted from one human to another. Gene drive - the practice of stimulating biased inheritance of particular genes to alter entire populations - has been proposed as a technique for changing wild populations of harmful organisms such as mosquitoes to be less dangerous. It is being proposed as an option for dealing with the Zika virus.
