Yale Study: Wild Mosquitoes Retained Genes Of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes By Aaron Kesel In Brazil a genetic engineering test of mosquitoes appears to have failed, with genes from the mutant mosquitoes now mixing with the native population, Nature reported. This comes as mad scientists in the U.S. are finding they are getting bitten back by messing with nature after running their own program to genetically modify mosquitoes.
