Entomology, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, Atlanta GA, USA
BMC Biotechnol 9:91. 2009..Thus, proving genetic integrity could seem incredibly time-consuming or impossible. On the other hand, lacking proof of genetically isolated laboratory strains could question the validity of research results...
- Methylparaben in Anopheles gambiae s.l. sugar meals increases longevity and malaria oocyst abundance but is not a preferred dietMark Q Benedict
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, Atlanta, GA, USA
J Insect Physiol 55:197-204. 2009..Because of its longevity effects, we have implemented methylparaben use for all mosquitoes in our holdings and recommend it as a routine sugar meal supplement...
