UC San Diego Professor Ethan Bier and research scientist Valentino Gantz, collaborators on the new DARPA project, recently developed a breakthrough gene-drive technology called Active Genetics, which controls the transmission of genetic traits. The technology is a driving force behind the new Tata Institute for Genetics and Society (TIGS), established last year to focus on immunizing mosquitoes in the Anopheline genus against malaria disease transmission in India.

Inside Innovation is a presentation series featuring the latest innovative technologies developed by UC San Diego researchers. Get an inside look at what is happening in the labs, explore commercialization opportunities and inquire about licensing.
