You’ll need to take a long breath before reading the topic of this newly patented research project by the Colorado State University Research Foundation and Pebble Labs of Los Alamos, New Mexico.
“A system for the biocontrol of disease-transmitting mosquitoes and their eggs using horizontally transferable symbiotic bacteria to deliver pathogen specific interfering RNA polynucleotodes.”
And now you’ll need to take a long breath to give your brain enough oxygen to process whatever that is.
I ran across this mouthful of a development in the “On the Record” section of a recent Albuquerque Journal “Business Outlook” section.
When reading local newspaper, I occasionally skim through legal ads, court rulings, want ads and other seemingly trivial topics and often come up with gems like this.
I have no idea what this development actually does, but perhaps when I find out more, I’ll do a blog about it.
In the meantime, if you’re a mosquito beware. High tech is coming after you.
