Establishment of a Wolbachia superinfection in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes as a potential approach for future resistance management

PLoS Pathos 12 (2): e1005434. doi:10.1371/journal.ppat.1005434

In this paper the authors describe the generation of an Aedes aegypti mosquito line simultaneously infected with two different Wolbachia strains, wMel andwAlbB. The deployment of mosquitoes containing two Wolbachia strains could represent an effective strategy to help manage potential resistance of dengue virus to a single strain of Wolbachia, should this be observed.
