My group has focused mainly on (a) development of transposon-based transgenesis and mutagenesis systems using the Minos mobile element as vector (b) development of genetic methodologies to control populations of insects of importance to man, and (c) understanding the molecular basis of host-symbiont interactions in Wolbachia-insect associations and applying Wolbachia-induced cytoplasmic incompatibility for insect population control.
