 en Vector biology prospects in dengue research
Lambrechts, Louis & Failloux, Anna-Bella

Abstract

We argue that using more natural blood feeding methods to study mosquito vector competence for dengue viruses and exploring the effect of viral infection on other mosquito life-history traits that influence vectorial capacity will significantly advance our understanding of dengue epidemiology.

Keywords
dengue - Aedes aegypti - Aedes albopictus - vector competence
