    The global distribution of the arbovirus vectors Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus

    Moritz UG Kraemer et al.
    The limits to the global distribution of the mosquitoes that transmit dengue and chikungunya have been predicted using a species distribution modelling approach.

    Data-driven identification of potential Zika virus vectors

    Michelle V Evans et al.
    Data-driven methods predict over 35 mosquitoes are potential vectors of Zika virus, suggesting a larger geographic area and a greater human population is at risk of infection.

    Mapping global environmental suitability for Zika virus

    Jane P Messina et al.
    A global map of environmental suitability for Zika virus and the estimated population living at potential risk can help refine public health guidelines, travel advisories and intervention strategies at a crucial time in the global emergence of this arbovirus.

    Guy1, a Y-linked embryonic signal, regulates dosage compensation in Anopheles stephensi by increasing X gene expression

    Yumin Qi et al.
    For the first time in a mosquito species an initial Y chromosome signal has been shown to regulate dosage compensation by increasing X chromosome gene expression.

    An Aedes aegypti-associated fungus increases susceptibility to dengue virus by modulating gut trypsin activity

    Yesseinia I Angleró-Rodríguez et al.
    Talaromyces (Tsp_PR) fungus render Aedes aegypti mosquitoes more susceptible to dengue virus infection through secreted molecules that impair midgut digestive enzyme transcription and activity.

    GUY1 confers complete female lethality and is a strong candidate for a male-determining factor in Anopheles stephensi

    Frank Criscione et al.
    Evidence that the small GUY1 protein is a strong candidate for being a male-determining factor is provided via the establishment of Guy1 transgenic lines of mosquitoes that confer complete and stable female lethality.

    Nationally-representative serostudy of dengue in Bangladesh allows generalizable disease burden estimates

    Henrik Salje et al.
    To maximize broad insight on disease burden, seroprevalence studies should be generalizable to the wider population, both in age and location.

    Dengue viruses cleave STING in humans but not in nonhuman primates, their presumed natural reservoir

    Alex C Stabell et al.
    An analysis of innate immunity reveals why dengue viruses do not reach high titers in primate laboratory models, even though they emerged through zoonotic transmission from primate reservoirs.

    The ion channel ppk301 controls freshwater egg-laying in the mosquito Aedes aegypti

    Benjamin J Matthews et al.
    The ion channel ppk301 is required for the evaluation of water purity during egg-laying, which promotes offspring survival in the arboviral vector mosquito Aedes aegypti.

    Using mobile phones as acoustic sensors for high-throughput mosquito surveillance

    Haripriya Mukundarajan et al.
    Mobile phones can accurately capture sound recordings from mosquito wingbeats with species-specific frequencies, together with metadata about the recording time, location and conditions, to enable rapid low-cost mosquito surveillance using a citizen-science approach.
