The Pan-African Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) ⁠and the Outreach Network for Gene Drive Research recently hosted the first of three webinars, as part of the Gene Drive Webinar Series. I had the pleasure of moderating this session called ⁠"What is gene drive?", which gathered over 100 participants and provided participants with an introduction to gene drive tools and their potential benefits and challenges.
