    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Temperature explains broad patterns of Ross River virus transmission

    Marta Strecker Shocket et al.
    Accounting for nonlinear responses to temperature is critical for accurately predicting how Ross River virus and other mosquito-borne diseases will respond to climate change and detecting the effects of temperature on disease transmission.

    Evaluating probabilistic dengue risk forecasts from a prototype early warning system for Brazil

    Rachel Lowe et al.
    The evaluation of a dengue early warning system demonstrates its potential to assist dengue prevention and control up to three months ahead of future epidemics.
