Mosquitoes are not just a summer annoyance; they are responsible for 700,000 deaths per year from deadly diseases they carry. What if mosquitos could not see their human hosts? Mosquitos are attracted to dark colors and humans register as dark regardless of what color clothing they are wearing. Researchers focused on a particular species called Aedes aegypi that use many senses including sight when they target a victim. By using CRISPER, researchers were able to target the part of their DNA that is drawn to dark. Elimination of 2 specific proteins which are light-sensing receptors in the eyes, the mosquitos flew aimlessly even in the presence of a dark test circle which previously they were drawn to. The study was conducted at the University of California, Santa Barbara by Craig Montell a neurobiologist. This would mean control of these pests in an eco-friendly manner. These mutated mosquitos have not yet been released into the public, but can you imagine being invisible to mosquitos.
