  • genomic
  • Conclusions/Significance: Our findings suggest that 2b-RAD genotyping is both a cost effective and methodologically simple approach for generating high resolution genomic data for Chagas disease vectors with the power to distinguish between different vector populations at epidemiologically relevant scales. (gla.ac.uk)
  • Using genomic tools, we are identifying vector factors that may play a role on pathogen establishment within the vector with primary interests on the insect microRNA populations. (trieste.it)
  • insecticide
  • As vectors may invade both from other infested houses and sylvatic areas and as the effectiveness of insecticide wears off over time, the dynamics of (re)infestations can be approximated by [Formula: see text]-type models with a reservoir, where housing units are treated as hosts, and insecticide spraying corresponds to removal of hosts.
