Caption: Plant pest research. Researcher using a microscope (centre) to guide the injection of the piggyBac gene vector, containing a fluorescent marker, into Indianmeal moth (Plodia interpunctella) eggs. The piggyBac is a transposon. Transpsosons are mobile genetic elements that are used to introduce specific genes to organisms in order to genetically modify some aspect of their behaviour or physical structure. The larvae of the Indianmeal moth are a major pest of processed cereal products around the world. This research is being done in an effort to control its spread.
