About William

Medical Entomology, Mosquito Genetics, Genetics of Dengue Susceptibility and Insecticide resistance. We are interested in the environmental and genetic determinants of dengue susceptibility in the mosquito Aedes aegypti. We are also involved in identifying genome regions and candidate genes that confer resistance to insecticides.
