Studies on the Effective population sizes of a major vector of human diseases, Aedes aegypti. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29151858

Temporal distribution and insecticide resistance profile of two major arbovirus vectors Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in Yaoundé, the capital city of Cameroon. These findings are vitsal in planning vector control programmes against arbovirus vectors in Cameroon and can be used as baseline in Africa where data on Aedes resistance is very scarce to plan further works. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29017606

Evidence generated from study on Potential of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus populations in the Central African Republic to transmit enzootic chikungunya virus strains confirm the risk of transmission of enzootic CHIKV by anthropophilic vectors such as Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28347325

Pyrethroid Resistance in Malaysian Populations of Dengue Vector Aedes aegypti Is Mediated by CYP9 Family of Cytochrome P450 Genes indicate predominant over-expression of cytochrome P450s suggests that synergist-based (PBO) control tools could be utilised to improve control of this major dengue vector across Malaysia. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28114328
