  • Volume 8 - Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms in the Environment

    Volume 8 covers the biology of an insect, the mosquito Aedes aegypti. This consensus document collates information for use during the regulatory risk assessment of biotechnology products, i.e. transgenic organisms (plants, animals, micro-organisms) when intended for release in the environment. Ae. aegypti mosquito is vectoring yellow fever, dengue, Zika and Chikungunya diseases in tropical and sub-tropical regions worldwide. Biotechnological applications are developed to control the mosquito population and reduce virus transmission.
