Brazil Experiment May Have Accidentally Created Genetically-Modified Super Mosquitos

An experiment to deliberately release genetically modified mosquitos into Brazil appears to have failed miserably - and may have even resulted in 'super-mosquitos' according to a Yale research study published earlier this month.

During a 27-month experiment aimed at curbing the spread of Yellow Fever, Dengue, Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases, approximately 450,000 male "OX513A" mosquitos modified by UK biotech company Oxitec were released into the wild in 2013. Females who mate with the designer mosquitos produce non-viable offspring, while Oxitec said that the man-made modifications wouldn't make it into the local insect population.
