One tool for the control of malaria that may become available to future generations of public health workers is the introduction of genes into the Anopheline vector populations that will render the mosquitoes refractory to Plasmodium. Insights from basic research that could transform this idea into a technical reality are presently lacking. In this review, Alon Warburg and Louis Miller focus on one crucial area of research: the identification of potentially vulnerable points in the developmental cycle of Plasmodium in mosquitoes.
