    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The cation channel TRPA1 tunes mosquito thermotaxis to host temperatures

    Román A Corfas, Leslie B Vosshall
    Female mosquitoes are exquisitely sensitive to human body heat, and the TRPA1 gene is required to focus their attraction toward thermal stimuli resembling warm-blooded hosts.

    The genome of the crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, a model for animal development, regeneration, immunity and lignocellulose digestion

    Damian Kao et al.
    The first malacostracan genome sequence will establish the genetically tractable Parhyale hawaiensis as a model organism in this key animal group.
