Genetic biocontrol is an approach that relies on genetic modification to control populations of species that threaten public health and biodiversity. This is a growing field of research that brings together researchers to develop innovative technologies and systems designed to manage parasite-transmitting mosquitoes and invasive species that threaten local ecosystems.

The “New Biological Platforms for Affecting Phenotype Changes for Control” conference is a unique opportunity to learn more about genetic biocontrol and its applications, potential benefits, and the future course of research.
